The GTOS programme has close liaisons with the Global Climate Observing System (GCOS) and the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS). Joint panels, listed below, link areas of shared interest within the Global Observing Systems.
 
The co-sponsors (FAO, UNEP, UNESCO, WMO and ICSU) of the Global Observing Systems have formed a Sponsors Group that develops a common strategy for programme implementation. Both the joint panels and the Sponsors Group ensure collaboration and information exchange among the systems.

In addition GTOS works closely in collaboration with a number of international initiatives and activities, including the Group on Earth Observations (GEO), international Conventions and different observing networks and programmes (see the activity section for details).
