Enhancing weather and climate service delivery

We work closely with National Meteorological and Hydrological Services to improve their weather and climate service delivery

Effective national weather and climate services are essential to strengthen a nation's preparedness, well-being, prosperity and prospects for growth.

To achieve this, National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NMHSs) need to deliver services to a wide range of customers in relevant, useful and accessible ways. We work in partnership with NMHSs worldwide to support them in developing their capabilities to deliver effective weather and climate services. We draw on our cutting edge science and operational experience to offer practical advice and specialist weather and climate consultancy services. 

Key areas we support include:

"The EWS (Early Warning System) project has greatly improved our forecasting capability and has enabled us to deliver services that are important for protecting life and property."
Anthony Twahirwa, Meteo Rwanda
