WRN Barbados Project Site
Through USAID Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA) funding, CIMH is working with regional partners, the COMET Program, and the Hydrologic Research Center to implement a Weather Ready Nations project. The goal of this project is to enhance Barbados' capacity to support early warning and impact-based forecasting systems in order to improve planning, policy, and decision-making during high impact events involving storm surge and inundation, flash flooding, flooding, and landslides. Outcomes of this project will be shared with WMO members in collaboration with Oscar Arango-Botero, WMO Office for North America, Central America and the Caribbean, and Claudio Caponi, WMO Hydrology and Water Resources Programme.
This project site provides access to sponsor, stakeholder, and project team resources. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
