Regional collaboration and support can bring synergy to national level modernization efforts to strengthen observation and weather forecasting systems. Transboundary nature of weather patterns can help improve understanding and effective transformation into impact-based forecasting systems that learn and get trained by shared experience as a region. In response to the need for more regional cooperation, the World Bank and World Meteorological Organization organized the South Asia Hydro-met Forum in September 2018.

Further, a second South Asia Hydro-met Forum held in Kathmandu, Nepal in November 2019 lead to a concrete agreement among the leaders of the National Meteorological and Hydrological Services in South Asia to proceed with the implementation of a regional approach for operational cooperation.

Project Background

South Asia Hydro-met Forum (SAHF) is a regional initiative that provides capacity building and training activities to support National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NMHSs) to generate and transform climate data into reliable information that are critical in saving lives and assets and strengthening the resilience of communities in South Asia.

The initiative is implemented by the Regional Integrated Multi-Hazard Early Warning System for Africa and Asia (RIMES), with support from the World Bank.
