Developing capacity in hydrometeorology:

verification, quality management and meeting user need

Moldova State Hydrometeorological Service (SHS) is being supported by the World Bank and the Global

Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery to help it meet user demand for weather, climate and

hydrological information services. Capacity building is needed on both the supply and demand sides of

hydrometeorological information services, as well as strengthening the interface between service providers

and users.

This project is part of the wider World Bank Technical Assistance Project 'Reinforcing Weather and Climate

Services' that is continuing to help transform the SHS into a modern service delivery agency, guided by the

World Meteorological Organization's (WMO) Strategy for Service Delivery (SDS).
