The primary objective is to coordinate weather modeling and verification with a view to enhance the capacity of the UNMA to generate and evaluate weather outlook by providing more detailed operational forecasts and improve accuracy.

The tasks include:

  • Enhance operational forecasters’ capacity in weather modeling and verification.

  • Develop and run empirical statistical and dynamical models.

  • Downscaling global forecasts to regional/national level that takes into account the local climatology

  • Generate short-range weather forecasts

  • Assessment and quantification of the relationship between forecasts and observations.

  • Enhance sub-regional scientific collaboration in NWP activities through joint projects.
