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.

1
Establish and enhance observing and monitoring systems to generate climate and disaster related data of national and regional interest
2
Build data integration system to unify multiple data acquisition platforms and online services
3
Promote data sharing mechanism to leverage regional and global data bank and improve forecast products

Modeling and Forecasting

1
Global and Regional Cooperation for modeling & forecasting using global weather predictions and observations
2
Support NMHSs on producing high resolution localized hydro-meteorological forecasts
3
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.

1
Pilot demonstrations on E2E EWS
Formulate and implement people-centered community based risk management actions, plans and protocols
2
Societal Application
Customize risk information to address societal as well as sectoral needs for information and services
3
Last Mile Communication
Develop and implement practical measures to transform forecasts and advisories into actionable information for last mile users

Capacity Building, Research & Development

1
Capacity Building on E2E EWS
Training on local data processing and application of forecast, warning, and response communication; graduate fellowship program
2
Applied Research Development of high-resolution climate models and integration of DRR and CCA into climate service delivery
3
Demand-driven Services Web application, toolkits, manuals and SOPs for effective implementation of risk response
Pillar 5

RIMES supports capacity building and innovates across the early warning service delivery spectrum to deliver cost-effective and sustainable solutions in line with the national and regional priorities.
