  • Capacity building of ABH staff on monitoring, data collection and processing as well as on data analysis and data exchange and results interpretation.

Type of services provided:

  • Analysis of current workflow within each ABH, regarding monitoring, analysis, processing, storage and exchange of data;
  • Assessment of existing monitoring network and staff capacities;
  • Documentation of procedures applied as well as of legal and regulatory frameworks regarding hydro-meteorological monitoring and data processing;
  • Capacity needs assessment for human resource development and formulation of job descriptions;
  • Definition of stakeholder involvement and responsibilities;
  • Training for ABH staff in the fields of monitoring, analysis and processing of hydro-meteorological data;
  • Foster the exchange of water resources data and information at national level and between basin organisations; and
  • Development of a Manual of Procedures for hydro-meteorological data monitoring and processing.
