Needs Assessment  

An assessment on “Improvement of Early Warning and Weather/Climate Forecast Systems in Northern Mountain Region” was prepared by the National Hydrometeorology Service (NHMS) to make available usable early warning products including weather/climate forecast products for agricultural applications. This assessment reviewed existing early warning systems and products available at the national and provincial levels.


By using the findings on the Early Warning Systems, the National Centre for Hydrometeorology Service collaborated with an expert to conduct training for staff in the 3 provinces on interpretation and preparation of impact outlooks, management plans in response to weather/climate information products and early warning messages for risk management.The purpose is to ensure timely information and communication flow as needed between district and national levels.
