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 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.
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 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).
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.
