The project will focus on building the capacity of communities to apply the rich information produced by the National Meteorological Services (NMHSs) on an hourly, daily to monthly basis for decision making. Surveys carried out by the Finland-Pacific (FINPAC) project showed that while the NMHSs regularly produce a number of very informative and useful products, there is very little uptake and use of these information by the community. While the CB-EWS/DRR is a concept that is focused on working with communities to build their capacity, support is also required at the regional and national level to setup policies and or trainings to enable information to be developed and disseminated to communities.
