The Portfolio

26 countries with significant data gaps are receiving SOFF support 

The 26 countries represent areas of high priority for numerical weather prediction models and where observational data are very scarce.

These countries will receive technical and financial support to build human capacity, install the needed infrastructure to collect and share data as well as operation and maintenance. Where infrastructure is already existing, SOFF will provide support to improve and re-habilitate. Global data sharing is what matters for weather forecasting and climate prediction models and will contribute to improve climate services, including early warning systems.
