This videopodcast has been produced to complement and expand on the World Bank-GFDRR publication: 'Charting a Course for Sustainable Hydrological & Meteorological Networks in Developing Countries’.
This webinar was delivered on 22 April 2021 by Dr. Florence Rabier, Director-General of European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF).
The societal need for better weather forecasts and climate projections is huge. The accuracy and reliability of weather and climate information have improved by: new and better observations, more powerful computers, and new science and technology. The Global Weather Enterprise continuously pushes the boundaries to unlock socio-economic benefits through the delivery of meteorological and climate services.
The presenter outlined her vision for future scientific advances, increased observational coverage, specific benefits for people, and taking co-operation to the next level.
