Workshop on the Strategy and Action plan of the WMO Flood Forecasting Initiative

Developed in 2003, the WMO Flood Forecasting Initiative (FFI) is based on the analysis of weaknesses of current forecasting systems and with a focus to enhance the ability of National Hydrological and Meteorological Services (NMHSs) to cooperate in an effective manner to provide improved flood forecasting services.

The Fifteenth Congress of WMO in 2007 had endorsed the “Strategy and Action Plan for the Enhancement of Cooperation between National Meteorological and National Hydrological Services for Improved Flood Forecasting”. Subsequently, in its Resolution 3, the Commission for Hydrology (CHy) during its thirteenth session in 2008 (CHy-XIII, 2008) decided “To supplement the Strategy and Action Plan on the Flood Forecasting Initiative with a detailed activity plan that will assist Members in establishing flood forecasting systems." The objective of this workshop has therefore been to develop an Activity Plan based on the Strategy and Action Plan of the WMO Flood Forecasting Initiative.

The principal result of the workshop has been the adoption of an Activity Plan, and the provision of guidance to implement the Activity Plan together with the consideration of potential pilot projects and the development of a framework to assess the efficiency of flood forecasting services.
