Monday, August 04, 2014

Update: 6:02PM A NEW weather initiative, Weather Together, was launched this morning in an attempt to improve the weather and climate services currently provided in small island developing states (SIDS).

The campaign, accessible at www.weathertogether.org, was launched with the support of the World Meteorological Organisation, the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) and Digicel Pacific.

The online initiative is also aimed at highlighting the important role SIDS play in bettering their own weather and climate services and how this impacts everyone on a global scale.
