In the West Africa Region, CREWS strengthens regional entities to engage with national hydrometeorological agencies in the region to improve risk information and early warning services at national level.
The project objective is to enhance the adaptive capacity and climate resilience of communities and economic sectors in five countries of the South-West Indian Ocean region.
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 main objectives of the project are: (i) to strengthen contribution of (multi-hazard) Early Warning System (EWS) to the reduction in risks and losses through enhanced capacities to measure and...
In the Caribbean, CREWS strengthens and streamlines regional and national systems and capacity related to weather forecasting, hydrological services, multi-hazard impact-based warnings and service delivery for enhanced decision-making.
In the Multi-Hazard Early Warning Conference, CREWS guided investments for effective, impact-based, multi-hazard early warning systems; defined the approach to establish national baselines on early warning systems to be used by government agencies to report on advances in early warning efforts as contemplated in the Sendai framework, the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda, and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change and increases capacities of LDC and SIDS to address multi-hazards effectively.
In the Caribbean, CREWS aimed to assess the effectiveness of Caribbean early warning systems by identifying critical gaps during the 2017 hurricane season in the areas of meteorology and hydrology, disaster management, and gender, to reassess and validate priority investments for CREWS and other initiatives.
