Niger: Strengthening Early Warning Services

In Niger, CREWS enhances the food security early warning system, and establishes a flood and extreme weather warning service (focusing on urban areas and along Niger and Komadougou Rivers).

CREWS resources contribute to improvement of the Government of Niger’s early warning services by enhancing food security early warning system and by establishing a flood and extreme weather warnings (mostly in urban areas and along major Niger and Komadougou Rivers).

Key Deliverables

  • Institutional and regulatory strengthening, capacity building and implementation support by reinforcing the legal and regulatory framework of hydromet and DRM services (DMN, DGRE, DGPC, DNPGCA, MAHGC) in order to develop partnerships and Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for delivery of service and implementing a capacity development and training program for staff
  • Delivery of basic early warning services by identifying requirements through decision-makers and the population at-risk and supporting the design and production of more accurate, timely and relevant warnings and information
  • Development of flood risk maps in pilot vulnerable communities
