Pacific: Strengthening Hydro-Meteorological and Early Warning Services

In the Pacific, CREWS strengthens the ability of the Regional Specialised Meteorological Centre (RSMC Nadi) within the Fiji Meteorological Service to support other Pacific Islands; and enhances the capacity of the national hydrometeorological agencies of Pacific Island Countries and Territories to provide impact-based forecasts of extreme weather events (such as floods, droughts, cyclones and storms).

The objectives of the project are to strengthen the ability of the Regional Specialised Meteorological Centre (RSMC Nadi) within the Fiji Meteorological Service to support other Pacific Islands; and enhance the capacity of the national hydrometeorological agencies of Pacific Island Countries and Territories to provide impact-based forecasts of extreme weather events (such as floods, droughts, cyclones and storms).

Key Deliverables
  • Institutional Strengthening of FMS, RSMC Nadi and Pacific Islands’ NMHSs
  • Capacity building and implementation support of FMS, RSMC Nadi and Fiji DRM agency
  • Capacity building and implementation support for impact-based forecasts and warnings at country level
  • Modernization of forecasting capabilities of FMS/RSMC Nadi
  • Modernization of forecasting capabilities of Pacific Islands’ NMHS participating in the project including Samoa and Tonga
  • Improvement of meteorological and hydrological service delivery
  • Community-based early warning systems
  • Project Management
