What is HydrometAFRICA?
HydrometAFRICA is designed to provide a platform for constructive conversation and debate around building resilient hydromet infrastructure, improving data, developing partnerships, working with stakeholders and understanding the current key themes coming out of the WMO, including Public-Private Engagement (PPE).
HydrometAFRICA brings together a diverse audience of public, particularly senior figures at African NHMS, and private sector stakeholders to develop a common understanding of their priorities and partnership needs.
