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.
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.
