The project aims to strengthen capacities to manage extreme weather events through the development of standard operating procedures, forming capacity in vulnerability assessment, and through a series of trainings at national and regional levels for managing extreme weather events. Key activities include the review of early warning system in project countries; the development of regional training curriculum on improving collection and sharing of reliable forecasts to national agencies; the development of vulnerability profiles for Cambodia and Timor-Leste; the development of national SOPs for early warning; and training of forecasters in the provision of annual, seasonal, monthly, and real-time forecasts for preparedness planning, response, and risk reduction.
