WEATHER observers from Fiji and around the region have been reminded on their roles as they are the building blocks of weather analysis

In opening the two-week regional observers training at the Fiji Meteorological office in Nadi yesterday, deputy secretary transport and energy Malakai Tadulala said the training program was timely because part of the capacity building program for weather observers.

"At present the most talked about issues on weather in international forums and conferences are climate change and global warming," Mr Tadulala said.

In fact, these two issues are inter- related and inter dependence.

"As such, weather observers are the building blocks of weather analysis and forecasting in any given national weather of meteorological agency.

"These recorded weather data and records are fed into the global weather watch system that is managed by the World Meteorological Organisation based in Geneva."

Australian acting high commissioner Glenn Miles said the Australian Government worked with Pacific countries for more than 20 years on a range of environmental projects.
