This atlas offers insights into the work of the national hydrometeorological services and the global networks that contribute to the information on our screens.

By providing easy-to-understand overviews of the weather and climate in the Central Asia region, the utility of weather and water information for society, and the role and needs of the National Meteorological and Hydrological Services, this Atlas can be used to inform decision-making, scope possible investments in development, and educate people.

It covers the range of weather, water and climate information and services available, and connects that information and those services to the spectrum of users with their own specific needs.

Advanced warnings of extreme weather can usually reduce the risks by providing people with the opportunity to take precautionary measures.  It recognizes common interests and specific differences between the climate zones and economic sectors of Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan. It also celebrates progress in the modernization of the respective National Meteorological and Hydrological Services and lays out a development path for service-oriented weather, climate and water information services.
