United Nations High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development. Special Event of the Alliance for Hydromet Development on the 8th of July 2021.
Launch of the Hydromet Gap Report
8 July 2021
High-quality weather forecasts, early warning systems, and climate information – hydromet – play a foundational role for climate action and sustainable development. Yet large gaps exist in hydromet capacities in developing countries, many of whom are on the front lines of climate change. The event will present the findings of the first Hydromet Gap Report and the recommendations for priority actions, including the creation of the Systematic Observations Financing Facility.
