UNDP Selects Earth Networks to Strengthen Africa’s National Severe Weather Early Warning Systems
Oct 5 15
Earth Networks announced that it has been awarded a Long Term Agreement (LTA) by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) to provide developing countries in Africa and beyond with goods and services for a National Meteorological and Hydrological Service Early Warning System to provide severe weather, nowcasting, monitoring and early warning to protect lives and property. Aiming to strengthen climate resilience, UNDP is assisting African countries to translate economic growth into long-lasting, inclusive human development. To support these challenges, Earth Networks, which has larger weather, lightning and greenhouse gas monitoring networks, was competitively selected to deliver a comprehensive Early Warning System that includes reliable and accurate data about current, near medium-term weather conditions via four major subsystems: a current conditions network, a severe weather nowcasting network, a weather forecasting solution and a weather and climate data display system. Earth Networks' Early Warning System is designed to strengthen weather infrastructures and reduce the impact of weather-related hazards on communities and economies. The establishment of this Early Warning System will help countries throughout Africa and beyond to mitigate the impact of extreme weather through real-time weather observations, high-resolution forecasts, and proxy weather radar. Earth Networks’ Early Warning System utilizes a cost-effective integrated approach, ensuring timely and accurate delivery of warnings and forecast information at a fraction of the cost of radar.
