Description

The project will build the capacity of Ethiopia's National Meteorological Agency (NMA ) on early warnings and other climate services, focusing on the western area of Ethiopia and all areas with major hydro dams and severe precipitation. The project includes three additional weather radars powered by solar panels and a lightning detection network. The project also includes a weather forecast production system and includes a significant component for training and maintenance. The supplementary air quality network in Addis Ababa is important to help create national policies and air quality regulations. The project aims to support in mitigating the effects of severe weather and climate change impacts. The project will benefit various economic and social sectors in Ethiopia, including agriculture. The estimated investment cost is 13 million Euros. It is proposed to be funded through the Piblic Sector Investment Facility (PIF).
