The objective of this assignment is to support the World Bank in providing technical assistance on hydrological modeling, based on global standards and good practices, to Western Balkan countries that have committed several of their own staff (from the National Hydrometeorological Agencies) and engaged external experts to pursue development of the South-East European Multi-Hazard Early Warning Advisory System (SEE-MHEWS-A).
Have you ever wondered what your national meteorological agency actually does? I suppose it wouldn’t be inaccurate to say that they can help you decide how to dress, whether or not to carry an umbrella, or water the garden. But their purpose is so much bigger than that.
National meteorological and hydrological services (NMHSs) are responsible for helping people understand, predict and warn of weather- and water-related hazards such as storms, floods, and hurricanes.
