Strengthening hydro-meteorlogical services in Southeast Asia


The Country Assessment Reports for Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Philippines and Viet Nam investigate the capacity of the national hydrological and meteorological services (NHMSs) and recommend improvements through a regional approach.

Initial assessments in the reports show the cost-effectiveness of strengthening national hydro-meteorological services through regional cooperation for reducing adverse impacts of natural hazard-induced disasters and climate change which know no national boundaries.

The World Bank and UNISDR produced the reports in collaboration with NHMSs and the technical inputs of WMO. GFDRR funded the study.
