Capacity building

It is our priority not only to deliver a reliable and good quality ICT solution, but also to train the relevant staff and organizations to optimally benefit from the information and tools provided. We build partnerships with public and private organizations and contribute in strong value-adding service chains.
To increase the capacity of people and organizations working with our services, we undertake capacity development at different levels.

“There is a real added value in helping our local partners to build up capacity and give them the needed training, so they can understand and use our services provided in the right way”

Example: Zimbabwe

The Zimbabwe Meteorological & Agricultural Departments required training on the use of agro-meteorological information to create Digital Climate Advisory Services. Weather Impact has developed several training sessions and aims to build capacity at the meteorological and agricultural institutions to generate these digital services. Topics that are covered are the use of open source data and software, accessing and processing meteorological data, generation of agro-meteorological advisories, dissemination of information, and more.

Example: the Netherlands

Weather Impact and HydroLogic provide a training program on weather and water management for Dutch waterboards and municipalities. This training program focusses on the intersection of weather and water management and helps in decision making and taking preventive measures in time. The 3-day program is filled with interesting information on the weather system and weather forecasting, the use of weather information in water management, a basis on climate change and climate scenarios and practical sessions on the use of meteorological and hydrological information.
