Delivering climate information requires access to reliable climate and weather data, but the collection and processing of hydro-meteorological data is significantly underfunded in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). National meteorological and hydrological agencies (NMHAs) have the mandate to observe, forecast and issue warnings for pending weather and climate threats. Currently there is a great opportunity to ensure that NMHAs have appropriate capacities, governance framework and financial infrastructure to deliver on this mandate, but to do this effectively, accurate identification of, and investments in, capacity gaps are key.
This webinar drew together panelists from the World Meteorological Organization, AGRHYMET Regional Centre, International Research Institute for Climate and Society, and the Rwanda Meteorology Agency to discuss the above questions.
