E-platform on weather and climate services for resilient development: a guide for practitioners and policy makers (self-paced)

Source(s):  World Bank, the (WB)

The goal of this e-platform is to demonstrate weather and climate services as a system of inter-connected parts and processes. The course raises awareness of this important agenda in the context of climate resilient development, and it will help teams and project managers in integrating weather and climate services considerations into their projects, both in terms of project conceptualization and delivery. This e-learning platform provides a basic introduction to weather and climate services and seeks to demystify how weather and climate information systems function, highlight their importance and value, outline lessons learnt, and provide practical project level guidance for those tasked with implementing weather and climate services-related investments.

Course Map:

  • In the first module, you will be introduced to the benefits of Weather and Climate Services and the value-chain approach.
  • The second module allows you to dive into the climate services value-chain - from the collection and management of water and weather data to the delivery of climate information to end-users, as well as the institutional actors involved along the way.
  • In the final module, the range of investment options is reviewed in the context of a real project.

The course also has a specialized module on Satellite Earth Observations which provides an opportunity to learn about the potential of Earth Observation for modernizing Weather and Climate Services in developing countries.
