Strengthening hydrometeorological networks
Country of activity
Central Africa Republic
This project was developed in the Congo basin in partnership with CICOS (Commission Internationale du Bassin Congo-OubanguiSangha). It is funded by the French Development Agency and concerns capacity-building and knowledge of water resources. It will optimize the network for monitoring and sharing water data and information to facilitate the implementation of adaptation measures. Hydrometeorological monitoring will be improved through innovative global technology under the French-American satellite program SWOT, developed by the CNES (Centre National d’Etudes Spatiales) with the support of the Investments for the Future programs of the French government. This technology will be exploited for a better understanding of the impacts of climate change in the Congo Basin.
