Water Exemplar to the User Interface Platform of the Global Framework for Climate Services
  • Water Exemplar to the User Interface Platform of the Global Framework for Climate Services
  • World Meteorological Organization (WMO). 2014
  • The purpose of the Water User Interface Platform (Water UIP) is to provide the necessary structure and processes to identify and respond to the needs of the water sector at all levels, in order to improve sector performance and management through the fuller use and understanding of climate information. This exemplar details the functioning of the Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) approach. This Water UIP plan outlines the general structure for partnerships and leadership, guiding needs, and opportunities to support and enhance climate informed deci...[Read full description]

Atlas of Mortality and Economic Losses from Weather, Climate and Water Extremes (1970-2012)
  • Atlas of Mortality and Economic Losses from Weather, Climate and Water Extremes (1970-2012)
  • World Meteorological Organization (WMO). July 2014
  • This Atlas seeks to raise awareness of changing characteristics (frequency, location, severity) of weather, climate and water-related hazards and other challenges to collecting and analysing disaster risk information. It presents a worldwide analysis of extreme weather, climate and water events, drawing on the Emergency Events Database (EM-DAT), compiled by the Centre for Research on the Epidemiology of Disasters (CRED). The Atlas compares the reported impacts of meteorological, climatic and hydrological extremes (as categorised by CRED) on people and economi...[Read full description]

Planning of water quality monitoring systems
  • Planning of water quality monitoring systems
  • World Meteorological Organization (WMO). 2013
  • This Technical Report has been developed in an effort to provide basic know-how and the materials needed to plan, establish and operate water-quality monitoring systems on national levels but also with a view to improving access to water-quality data and information in transboundary basins and globally. It is largely intended for use by water-agency managers whose dominant technical background is in hydrology, meteorology, engineering or water-resources management, rather than water quality, but who are responsible for the effective monitoring of developments...[Read full description]

Strengthening of Hydrometeorological Services in Southeast Asia. Country assessment report for Vietnam
  • Strengthening of Hydrometeorological Services in Southeast Asia. Country assessment report for Vietnam
  • National Hydrological and Meteorological Services (NHMS), United Nations International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (UNISDR), World Meteorological Organization (WMO). 2013
  • This Country Assessment Report for Vietnam investigates the capacity of the national hydrological and meteorological services (NHMSs) and recommends improvements through a regional approach. Initial assessments in the report show the cost-effectiveness of strengthening national hydro-meteorological services through regional cooperation for reducing adverse impacts of natural hazard-induced disasters and climate change which know no national boundaries.
