The WMO HydroHub organizes its work around three following outcomes:
Outcome 1: Increased Capacity
NMHSs, with improved staff technical expertise, sustainably operate hydromet monitoring systems with enhanced data management and improved national and international data sharing.
Outcome 2: Operationalized Innovation
NMHSs continuously develop and innovate their hydrometric approaches and technologies in collaboration with academia and private sector.
Outcome 3: Optimized Engagements and Investments
NMHSs catalyse development opportunities and impact for the overall hydromet community through strengthened internal and external engagements that offer greater visibility, knowledge sharing and communication.
Portfolio of activities
Capacity and Needs Assessments:
to assess institutional, human and technical capacities, gaps and needs of NMHSs, hydrological forecasting institutions, water resources management bodies and Basin Organizations at national and regional levels, as well as to develop a Roadmap for improved service delivery
Face-to-face and Distance Learning Trainings:
to design and carry out trainings addressing specific technical expertise deficits, especially those identified at regional level
Data Management and Sharing support activities:
to equip NMHSs with appropriate data management and sharing tools as well as foster the development of data sharing agreements
Reviewing and updating WMO Regulatory material:
to ensure international guidance material better reflects the realities of hydrometry on the ground
to bring together NMHSs, academia, private sector (solution providers) and others, and facilitate targeted interactions among them
to find and operationalize innovative solutions to NMHSs hydrometric challenges
Knowledge sharing and support for communication Tools and Platforms:
to disseminate knowledge and lessons learnt from all WMO HydroHub activities and to connect NMHSs with existing networks
User-provider Workshops and Webinars:
to bring together NMHSs, public and private sectors (users of hydromet services) and facilitate targeted interactions among them, including for identifying and developing new markets for NMHSs services
to carry out national cost-benefit analysis of hydrological data investments, and convey the comprehensible results and recommendations to ministries responsible for NMHSs budget allocations
The WMO HydroHub governing body falls into the Hydrological Assembly as a body of the World Meteorological Congress.
