Creating commitment - Alliance for Hydromet Development

Uniting efforts to close the capacity gap by 2030

The Alliance for Hydromet Development brings together major international development, humanitarian and climate finance institutions, collectively committed to scale up and unite efforts to  close the hydromet capacity gap by 2030. It aims to increase the effectiveness and sustainability of hydromet investments by forging a collaborative partnership which recognizes and leverages the respective competencies and expertise of its members.

The Alliance Members commit to strengthen the capacity of National Meteorological and Hydrological Services for sustained operation of observational systems and data exchange that meet WMO standards for minimum monitoring coverage and reporting frequency.

Members also commit to better coordinate and design investments to best support developing countries, based on shared approaches and development outcomes. This includes fostering programmatic approaches that go beyond individual projects, as well as leveraging financial resources and expertise from the private sector to provide sustainable solutions and modernizing hydromet infrastructure in developing countries.

The actions of the Alliance to close the hydromet capacity gap are guided by the principles of United Nations agreements, including the Sustainable Development Goals under the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Paris Agreement on climate change and the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030.

The Alliance was launched at the COP25 climate conference on 10 December 2019.
