Main Objectives

Harmonized forecasts and warnings among the NMHSs especially in transboundary areas throughout the region along with increased operational forecasting capabilities of the NMHSs staff

Strengthened regional cooperation through leveraging of national, regional and global capacities to develop improved hydrometeorological forecasts, advisories and warnings, which will contribute to saving lives and reducing economic losses and damage

Improved availability of impact-based forecasts and risk-based warning capacities that contribute to better informed decision-making by governments, disaster management authorities, humanitarian agencies, and NGOs

Strengthened national MHEWS systems by making regional and sub-regional observing, monitoring and forecasting tools and data available to the participating countries and other beneficiaries
