The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) intends to procure and implement an Upper Air Observing System at a selected synoptic station to bolster the observational capabilities of the Burkina Faso National Meteorological Agency. Specifically, the establishment of a new radiosonde station is scheduled for deployment at the synoptic station of Fada N'Gourma.
