The grant will provide continued technical assistance to the countries developing the South-East European Multi-Hazard Early Warning Advisory System (SEE-MHEWS-A). SEE-MHEWS-A is strengthening regional weather and flood forecasting, thereby improving the lead-time, accuracy and resolution of early warnings of hydrometeorological hazards in the region. The grant will also continue to bolster regional cooperation and harmonization, as well as providing guidance for how the countries can continue to develop and operationalize SEE-MHEWS-A upon completion of GFDRR support. This will be achieved through three activities:1. Coordination and technical guidance with the World Meteorological Organization (WMO).2. Development of public outreach materials including infographics, brochures and a proposal for a website.3. Economic assessment of a potential full operationalization of SEE-MHEWS-A.
