Enhancing Data Availability

RIMES supports Member States in enhancing monitoring networks and data management systems to ensure data availability and address gaps in multi-hazard early warning information.

Establish and enhance observing and monitoring systems to generate climate and disaster related data of national and regional interest
Build data integration system to unify multiple data acquisition platforms and online services
Promote data sharing mechanism to leverage regional and global data bank and improve forecast products

Modeling and Forecasting

Global and Regional Cooperation for modeling & forecasting using global weather predictions and observations
Support NMHSs on producing high resolution localized hydro-meteorological forecasts
Support NTWCs on assessing hazard, vulnerability and exposure to potential earthquake, tsunami, and coastal inundation

RIMES co-develops models for risk and impact-based forecasting with Member States and fosters cooperation at national, regional and global levels for data sharing to improve accuracy and lead-time of forecasts.

Transforming Data into Actionable Information

RIMES provides expertise for building user-relevant, actionable and impact-based climate services that empower Member States for climate sensitive decision-making, resulting in greater socio-economic benefits.

Institutional Mechanisms for knowledge sharing and collaboration through seasonal, local and regional forums
Decision Support Systems for empowering decision makers with tools for generating impact-based forecasts, risk information and advisories
Tailor-made Services through co-production of services and web-tools in agriculture, water resources, transportation and public health

Community Outreach & Feedback

RIMES facilitates mechanisms for empowering local institutions and communities through actionable risk information and two-way interaction for enhanced resilience.

Pilot demonstrations on E2E EWS
Formulate and implement people-centered community based risk management actions, plans and protocols
Societal Application
