Meteorology in Mozambique
The Nordic Development Fund (NDF) is teaming up with the World Bank to strengthen meteorological capacity and climate resilience in Mozambique. NDF now calls for expressions of interest.
The project is entitled “Transforming Hydro-Meteorological Services”. It falls under the umbrella of the Strategic Program for Climate Resilience (SPCR), a multi-donor long-term investment programme that aims to play a catalytic role in promoting climate-resilient growth strategies in Mozambique.
The objective is to strengthen hydrological and meteorological information services to deliver reliable and timely information that increases climate resilience, in turn lowering water and weather related risks to local communities and economic development.
The NDF component will be implemented by Mozambique’s National Institute for Meteorology (INAM).
The total cost of the project is EUR 17 million, of which NDF will provide EUR 4.5 million, the World Bank EUR 11.4 million (USD 15 million) and the local counterpart, EUR 1.14 million.
The deadline for submitting expressions of interest is January 20, 2014.
