The three-year Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Reduction in Agriculture Project culminated with a Networking Conference on 4 and 5 February in Rome, hosted by the Italian National Research Council and the Italian Meteorological Service. Decision-makers and experts from 21 countries in West Africa used the opportunity to discuss project outcomes, examine continued needs and consider follow-up capacity development initiatives.
WMO, the World Bank and its Global Facility for Disaster Risk Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR) have committed to intensify joint action in order to improve country capacities that build resilience to extreme weather events, climate and disaster impacts. The Action Plan for scaling up collaboration was signed during a meeting on 1 April between World Bank interim President Kristalina Georgieva, World Bank Vice-President Laura Tuck and WMO Secretary-General Petteri Taalas.
While in Washington, D.C., the Secretary-General had high-level meetings with senior U.S. Government officials to discuss the WMO constituent body reform and new WMO Strategic Plan. He met with the new interim administrator of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Dr Neil Jacobs and U.S. Permanent Representative to the WMO, Director of the National Weather service (NWS), Dr Louis Uccellini. They discussed the integrated Earth system approach that drives the WMO reform progress in public private partnership engagement and the WMO budget.
Heat risks remain a silent disaster. The First Global Forum on Heat and Health, held in Hong Kong, China, from 17 to 20 December 2018, addressed that challenge and launched the Global Heat Health Information Network (the Network). Over the four-day event, 120 interdisciplinary practitioners and researchers from 33 countries provided fresh, real-world perspectives on heat health risk management across diverse fields, such as medical science, urban planning, meteorology, and economics.
The Coastal Inundation Forecasting Demonstration Project (CIFDP) has been developing and implementing a Multi-Hazard Early Warning System (MHEWS) for coastal flooding, from both rivers and the ocean, for the last ten years. Since its establishment in 2009, three demonstration projects have been completed – Bangladesh (2017), Caribbean (2018), Indonesia (2019) – and a fourth, Fiji, is on-track for completion by the end of 2019.
Since the establishment of the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) in the 1990s, a small number of NMHSs have assumed responsibility for producing and broadcasting Maritime Safety Information (MSI) on behalf of WMO Members. As of today, the world’s ocean is fully covered under 21 Meteorological Areas (METAREAs), coordinated by 19 countries that invest human, material and financial resources to issue MSI bulletins in 24/7 shifts to the entire maritime community at no charge. This IMO (International Maritime Organization)/ WMO Worldwide Met-Ocean Information and Warning Service (...
The WMO Severe Weather Forecasting Demonstration Project (SWFDP) was launched in 2006 in 5 countries in south-eastern Africa. Today, over 75 countries around the world are benefiting from the project. A recent West Africa SWFDP project workshop in Togo attracted over 90 participants from 15 NMHSs – Benin, Burkina Faso, Cabo Verde, The Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Ivory Coast, Liberia, Mali, Nigeria, Niger, Senegal, Sierra Leone and Togo. While a Regional Subproject Management Team (RSMT) in Sri Lanka did a first review of progress in the Bay of Bengal SWFDP, updating the Subproject...
Joint session of Mediterranean, South East European, Northern Africa and Arab Climate Outlook Forums was held in Cairo, Egypt, from 26 to 29 November 2018. The Forum produced a seasonal climate outlook for the 2018-2019 boreal winter season over the entire Mediterranean region, as well as sub-regional outlooks for South East Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, and agreed on a common approach to ensure harmonized information across overlapping areas.
The WMO Constituent Body Reform aim is to deliver a smart, agile and responsive WMO – fit for the 21st Century.
The Climate Risk & Early Warning Systems (CREWS) Initiative launched new activities in the Pacific Islands in the last six months. Both Papua New Guinea and Fiji, islands already affected by the impacts of climate change, will be benefiting from early warning systems (EWS) being implemented for climate change mitigation and adaption.
