We are a trusted and long-term partner of the UK Government, donor agencies, developing country governments, other consultancies, research institutions, non-governmental organisations and national meteorological services worldwide.
Our weather and climate services for international development are underpinned by sound science; they are people-centred and tailored to local needs; and are sustainable solutions that support sustainable development.
In Kenya, for example, we are working closely with the Kenya Meteorological Service and other consortium partners on a DFID funded project. We are improving weather services for three million people in the country and providing climate information to support climate change adaptation. Find out more on the ADA consortium website.
We collaborate with intergovernmental organisations, such as the World Meteorological Organization, which co-ordinates work on weather and climate. We share resources for research, education and training.
Since 1988, our scientists have contributed to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which reports on the impacts of climate change. As part of our contribution we have compiled scientifically robust and objective information on the physical impacts of climate change and carried out further detailed analyses for more than 20 countries.
Our work with African stakeholders in the Climate Science Research Partnership aims to further scientific understanding of the African climate.
As an international organisation, we are exposed to many challenges, and have a reputation of meeting and exceeding expectations.
