CREWS resources contributes to the improvement of the Government of Chad’s early warning services for drought, flooding and other severe climate and weather-related events by enhancing the capacities of national services in charge of meteorology and climate, hydrology, civil protection, and food security and piloting selected products, which could be replicated and scaled up by larger investment projects. To this scope, CREWS resources leverages additional financing in the area of hydromet and early warning systems by development partners, such as the World Bank Group, the Green Climate Fund and others from within the Africa Hydromet Program.
