The WMO HydroHub was established in 2017 with the financial support of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) to address hydrological monitoring challenges by enhancing hydrological monitoring systems worldwide by bringing together a broad range of stakeholders from different sectors and providing them with technical guidance and support for sustainable operations.
The WMO HydroHub Phase I (January 2017 - August 2021) aimed at helping to expand a reliable and sustainable base of hydrometeorological data and information services in support of informed decisions and policy-making in water management. The highlights of WMO HydroHub Phase I are available here.
The WMO HydroHub Phase II started in September 2021 for a period of 5 years. In its Phase II, it is foreseen that the WMO HydroHub will reach the following overall goal and outcomes:
Enhanced and sustainable monitoring and information to support NMHSs’ effective delivery of hydrological services for disaster risk reduction, social and economic development, and environmental protection.
Outcome 1: Increased Capacity
Outcome 2: Operationalized Innovation
Outcome 3: Optimized Engagements
NMHSs, with improved staff technical expertise, sustainably operate hydromet monitoring systems with enhanced data management and improved national and international data sharing.
NMHSs continuously develop and innovate their hydrometric approaches and technologies in collaboration with academia and private sector.
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.
