From 13-15 March 2017, staff from the Regional Centre for Mapping of Resources for Development (RCMRD) was trained on stream flow forecasting methodologies entitled “Hydrological modeling using a multi-model approach”. The aim was to transfer the required skills to RCMRD staff  involved with SERVIR activities as a way to implement the stream flow forecast project. The project is a collaborative effort led by the Department of Hydrology and Water Resources at the University of Arizona, NASA’s SERVIR program and the Intergrated Water Resources Management unit at UNESCO (ICIWaRM-UNESCO).

The workshop offers intensive training that will cover the fundamental concepts and tools for DRR. People-centered early warning systems empower communities to prepare for and confront the power of natural hazards and measurement of the systems in terms of lives saved and reduction in losses, which is directly related to the execution of an anticipated response by the people and institutions once a warning is issued.
