National Meteorological and Hydrological Services, Their Partners and User Communities: (Follow-up to the Madrid Action Plan - for Improved Social and Economic Benefits of Weather, Climate and Water Services)
This report has been prepared to build upon the Madrid Action Plan (MAP) that resulted from the WMO International Conference on Secure and Sustainable Living: Social and Economic Benefits of Weather, Climate and Water Services, Madrid, Spain, 19-22 March 2007, which is also known as the Madrid Conference. The report is presented in three parts and four appendices. The first section, Part I of the report relates to the Madrid Conference and the MAP. The MAP actions are analysed and proposals are made regarding the ways that both National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NMHSs) and the WMO Secretariat can move ahead on these actions. Part II of the report is focussed on users and capacity-building. It builds on the proposals that appear in Part I. Part III discusses the quantification of benefits that the NMHSs and their services provide.
