Country Hydromet Diagnostics
Benchmarking National Meteorological Services to track progress on closing the capacity gap is a commitment of the Alliance for Hydromet Development. Therefore, the Country Hydromet Diagnostics (CHD) is being developed as a standardized, integrated and operational way of diagnosing these Services, their operating environment, and their contribution to high-quality weather, climate, hydrologicbal and environmental information services, and warnings. The Diagnostics is both, a tool and a peer-review approach. As peers, advanced National Meteorological and Hydrological Services from developed and developing countries will undertake the Diagnostics, strictly applying the tool. The peer review will be undertaken through the WMO Country Support Initiative.
