What is HydrometPACIFIC?
HydrometPACIFIC is designed in partnership with the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP), 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 World Meteorological Organisation (WMO), including Public-Private Engagement (PPE).
HydrometPACIFIC brings together a diverse audience of public, particularly senior and technical figures at Pacific Island National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NMHS), and private sector players to develop a common understanding of their priorities and partnership needs.
Through highly relevant content and debate, our audience can uncover funding opportunities, new partnership models and gain high-quality perspectives.
What will we discuss?
Switching from 2019’s in-person event to a safe and secure virtual meeting, June’s Summit will deal with a number of important weather, climate, hydrological and meteorological topics, including:
Engage with the latest technical developments and top products in the hydromet space
Discuss emerging weather, and climate themes, including impact-based forecasting
Visit our sector experts for one-to-ones and demos in the Solutions Centre
Hear the latest on WMO policy and funding mechanisms
