me2 small - climate adaptation.

The Met Office has published a call for competition for a DFID-funded WISER (Weather & Climate Information Services for Africa) project.  The national projects will support the implementation of national meteorological and hydrological service strategic plans. Concept notes may be submitted by NHMSs themselves or a lead project partner.  

WISER

WISER is funded by the UK government’s Department for International Development (DFID). The WISER programme's mission is to deliver transformational change in the quality, accessibility and use of weather and climate information services at all levels of decision-making for sustainable development in Africa.

WISER will:

  • Focus on service delivery, directed by user needs, which support poverty reduction and development;
  • Work holistically to inform climate risk decision making bringing together research, policy and practice;
  • Work with regional, national or sub-national plans, which have involved users; and
  • Work through existing and mandated organisations and channels where possible and appropriate.

The Met Office acts as Fund Manager for the East Africa part of WISER, including the provision of technical leadership, future programme development, programme oversight and by managing sub-grants of funds.
