Climate information for disaster risk reduction

Source(s):  World Meteorological Organization (WMO)

This fact sheet presents disaster risk reduction as one of the high priorities for the development of the Global Framework for Climate Services, to meet both the growing needs and opportunities to increase disaster resilience. It describes the considerable achievements that could be realized with an appropriate use of meteorological, hydrological and climate information as part of a comprehensive multi-sector, multi-hazard, and multi-level (local to global) approach.

It highlights the cases of investment in meteorological services and early warning systems in Shanghai and Cuba, as well as the use of financial risk transfer and weather indexed insurance mechanisms against drought and floods in Ethiopia and Malawi, as good practices.
