Operational provision for the hydrometeorological safety of the Transport Corridor Europe-Caucasus-Asia (TRACECA)
Оперативное гидрометеорологическое обеспечение безопасности транспортного коридора Европа-Кавказ-Азия (ТРАСЕКА)
This brochure describes the TRACECA Programme, launched by the European Union to develop a transport corridor from Europe to Central Asia. The National Hydrometeorological Services will provide assistance for the safety of operations along the route, which crosses a vast surface affected by a wide range of meteo-rological and hydrological phenomena. NMSs will reduce the impact of adverse hydrometeorological events on the transportation sector by providing, inter alia, operational hydrometeorological predictions, data monitoring and early warning systems, and land, coastal and marine forecasts, for a sound, environmentally-oriented management of roads, railways and ports.
