Engagement Note: Hydromet

Improving monitoring and prediction of meteorological and hydrological hazards
November 2017

Robust weather services save lives, reduce impacts from disasters, and promote sustainable economic growth. GFDRR is working to improve the ability of developing countries to understand, predict, and warn their citizens of meteorological and hydrological hazards. The Hydromet program advises national governments to drive investment and increase knowledge in modern systems and tools. This helps to close the development gap and minimize loss and damage from future extreme weather events.
