UNISDR and WMO started in May 2012 the joint implementation of the project 'Building resilience to disasters in the Western Balkans and Turkey'. The project is supported by the European Commission DG Enlargement through the Instrument for Pre-Accession (IPA). The beneficiaries are Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Kosovo (under UNSCR 1244) and Turkey. The project has a duration of 24 months and will end in May 2014. The overall objective of the Action is to strengthen the resilience of the IPA beneficiaries to disasters.
As a part of the project activities, WMO is organizing a workshop on historic hydro-meteorological data management. The workshop aims to strengthen the capacities of the National Meteorological and Hydrological Services of the project beneficiaries regarding the historic meteorological and hydrological data management including the improvement of the data rescue activities and homogenization, standardization and quality control of data in accordance with the international standards. These activities aim at the improvement of the beneficiaries’ capacities in the development and the implementation of the tools and the methodologies for the production of the risk assessment and mapping of hazards at the national and regional level.
