To discuss this in more depth, this webinar draws 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.
The World Meteorological Organisation will showcase a checklist for NMHAs with some reflections of how projects use a tool like this to identify and address needs and capacity gaps.
International Research Institute for Climate and Society will present a tool to enable NMHAs to quantifiably articulate their capacity gaps. This work builds on existing approaches and has implications for future capacity assessments.
AGHRYMET Regional Centre will present their experiences from recent capacity assessments for Niger and Malawi, focussing on key learning, surprises and reflections.
Finally, Rwanda Meteorology Agency (Meteo Rwanda) will respond to the previous speakers on how the assessment and metric tool approaches align with their own needs.
This webinar will be facilitated by Dr Zablone Owiti, SouthSouthNorth Projects Africa.
