The Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland has financially supported within its development cooperation program the
World Weather Watch since 1968, when WMO launched the Voluntary Co-operation Programme (VCP).
Finland has supported the provision of radiosondes and control unit systems to WWW and global research programmes.
Support has also been given by Finland to the training programmes on the operation and maintenance of hydrogen
generators as well as to the delivery of spare parts to the main measurement stations, and observatories in developing countries.
Finland took part in strengthening WWW in Singapore (Changi) in the 1970s and Philippines (Laoag and Legaspi)
and Papua New Guinea (Madang) in early 1990s.
