The workshop will also serve to:
- Establish strategic partnership at the national and regional levels, and
- Share experiences and success stories on the beneficial use of meteorological and hydrological information, products and services in socio-economic development.
The workshop will be followed by a one-day capacity building workshop on management for the heads of national meteorological and hydrological services.
