The Reinforcing the capacities of meteorological and hydrological services and enhancing the early warning systems in Cambodia and Lao Peoples Democratic Republic (CREWS Cambodia and Lao PDR) project jointly implemented by the World Bank (WB), World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR) along with the National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NMHSs) and National Disaster Management Offices (NDMOs) of Cambodia and Lao PDR is aimed at reducing the human and socioeconomic impact caused by disasters such as floods, droughts, landslides and severe weather, through increased access to early warnings and risk information. As part of the CREWS project, the World Bank is conducting needs assessments of the NMHSs to strengthen hydromet networks for end-to-end early warning in Cambodia and Lao PDR and to develop investment plans to address identified needs.

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.
