The Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI) is continuing its co-operation, which got off to an excellent start, with the Department of Hydrology and Meteorology of Nepal (DHM) in a new FNEP2 project. The goal of the project is to improve Nepalese meteorological expertise and preparedness for natural disasters, which climate change is expected to increase in the future. The three-year project is an ICI (Institutional Cooperation Instrument) funded by the Finnish Ministry for Foreign Affairs. The project agreements were signed in the spring and summer, with the project launch slated for autumn of 2013.

Weather and Climate Resilience (WMO NEWS) Date:01-09-2013

Effective preparedness through National Meteorological and Hydrological Services1

by David Rogers and Vladimir Tsirkunov of the World Bank

Faced with a growing risk of weather and climate related disasters that can set back economic and social development for years, the global community needs to act quickly to strengthen National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NMHSs). This strengthening should be done in a way that transforms weak agencies – especially in the developing world – into robust professional agencies capable of delivering the right information to the right people at the right time. Although the price tag of modernizing and sustaining NMHSs will be considerable, the rewards for the country and its citizens will be much higher. The World Bank, working closely with WMO and other development partners, can help countries navigate this complex task in a timely, efficient manner.1

The need to serve more elaborate societal needs, minimize growing economic losses from natural hazards and help countries adapt to climate change is increasing the importance of weather, climate and water information. Weather, climate and water affect societies and economies through extreme events, such as tropical cyclones, floods, high winds, storm surges and prolonged droughts, and through high impact weather and climate events that affect demand for electricity and production capacity, planting and harvesting dates, managing construction, transportation networks and inventories, and human health.

5,000 Nepalese affected by Uttarakhand flood Date:07-09-2013

The government says that some five thousand Nepalis were affected by the heavy downpour and the subsequent floods and landslides it triggered in Uttarakhanda of India on June 16 and 17.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that nearly five thousand Nepalis including those operating hotels and shops at Badrinath and Kedarnath and surrounding areas, those carrying the pilgrims to these places and those who reached there for pilgrimage were in these places at the time of the disaster.

A team that went to the flood-affected area from New Delhi last week for collecting information on the real situation of the Nepalis in the area gave out the information that five thousand Nepali citizens including three thousand 900 people who carried the pilgrims, 158 hotel operators and those operating small shops near the temples and nearby areas and those who reached there for paying homage from different pl;aces of Nepal, were present in Uttarakhand when the disaster struck, Foreign Ministry spokesman Deepak Dhital said.

Dhital said that according to the details collected by the team Nepalis incurred property loss of over four million Indian rupees due to the disaster. The Indian authorities informed the Nepali team that no Nepali was found involved in the looting of property and goods that took place in the flood-affected area, he added.

The Uttarakhand State officials suggested the team to collect the particulars of the pilgrims from all the 75 districts of Nepal, saying they didnot have the exact data regarding the number of Nepalis affected or displaced or killed, Ministry spokesman Dhital said, quoting the Nepalese Embassy in New Delhi, India.

Only 165 of the people who went on pilgrimage to Badri Kedar during that time have come into contact.

More than one thousand people were killed and an equal number were reported missing by the Indian media. The flood and landslide destroyed infrastructure including roads, buildings and bridges with investments of billions of rupees.
