Project Type: Research

DESCRIPTION: The program objective is to strengthen institutions, facilitate knowledge exchange and enhance cooperation on Hydrological and Meteorological (hydromet) risks and climate services across South Asia.

Specifically, the program supports participating countries and institutions to better respond to weather and water-related hazards and climate risks domestically and regionally. The program also aims to improve monitoring, weather and flood forecasting, community-based early warning systems, and the delivery of hydromet services to communities.

This approach shifts from managing water-related disasters to management of risks and help strengthen the supply and demand aspects of hydromet service delivery.
