Weather and Climate Information in Africa (WISER): Africa: Tanzania Africa's Next Leading Met Services Hub
WEATHER and climate information services are now fully established in the country, thanks to efforts by Tanzania Meteorological Authority (TMA).
The TMA was founded 18 years ago and was previously known as the Directorate of Meteorology.
Meteorological services have experienced a boost during the past four years, with the establishment of three projects by the Weather and Climate Information Services (WISER) programme.
The National-WISER, Highway and Multi-Hazard Early Warning System (MHEWS) projects were all funded by the UK's Department for International Development (DFID). The National-WISER project (ongoing) is concentrated in the central-zone and northeast regions, focused on enhancing weather and climate information services to drive better decision-making and combat poverty.
