Description: The project aimed to increase know-how among the hydrometeorological institutes of all five countries and to raise preparedness for weather-related natural disasters, which could become more frequent because of climate change. Efficient weather and climate services help to manage the adverse effects of climate change and extreme weather events on the economy and human life. In addition, the cooperation partners in Uzbekistan were assisted in modernising their institute and revising its development strategy.
