RA I Dissemination Expert Group

Following recommendations from the EUMETSAT User Forum in Africa and the WMO Regional Association I (Africa), the RA I Dissemination Expert Group (RAIDEG) was established by WMO in cooperation with EUMETSAT, as part of the strategy to improve satellite data accessibility and user awareness in developing countries.

The Terms of Reference of the RA I Dissemination Expert Group are to:

  • Collect, review and maintain requirements for access to meteorological and environmental data and products by NMHSs and partner organizations in Africa;
  • Analyze the requirements for satellite-based products expressed by African NMHSs, Centres of Excellence, Training Institutes and other environmental monitoring organizations in Africa making use of EUMETCast and GTS dissemination services; and
  • Make recommendations on the requirements for products and on the assignment of priorities, aiming at optimizing product dissemination through EUMETCast or the GTS.

The group performs a regular review of the EUMETCast-Africa Dissemination Baseline compared with the needs expressed by RA I users, and formulates recommendations to EUMETSAT. It also discusses other technical matters regarding satellite data utilization in Africa.

The group has held the following meetings:
