This study, conducted by the USAID-funded Climate Information Services Research Initiative (CISRI), is designed to contribute to the operationalization of Niger's National Framework for Climate Services, known as the Cadre National pour les Services Climatologiques, by filling knowledge gaps related to climate information services (CIS) end user needs.
Using Probabilistic Forecasting for Better Preparedness
• Practical Action has improved flood early warning across Nepal, through development, piloting, and scaling up of a low data approach to increasing early warning.
• Graphics provide information on the likelihood of water levels reaching warning and danger levels.
• The model has potentially increased the lead time of early warnings from 2 to 7 hours.
• The system has been replicated across Nepal, enhancing early warning for vulnerable communities.
