Evidence based analysis to strengthen hydrology and meteorology early warning services in Niger

We have carried out an evidence-based analysis which can be used to strengthen and modernize Niger’s hydrology and meteorology (hydromet) and early warning services. This project has highlighted areas where improvements can be made in the ability to forecast and communicate climate hazards, especially flooding, facing Niger.

Our analysis involved identifying and assessing a broad spectrum of structural and organisational factors within the current hydromet services, including user needs, stakeholder involvement and sustainability goals.


We assembled a team with widespread experience in Niger, West Africa and worldwide, including in flood forecasting and warning, food security and gender issues. Our team comprised international experts in national hydromet service modernization, economic assessment, early warning system development, hydrometeorology and climate model science translation. This team worked in close partnership with stakeholder organisations in Niger to assess user needs for hydromet services and identify solutions for improved service delivery of hydromet services.


This project has highlighted areas where improvements can be made in the ability to forecast and communicate climate hazards, especially flooding, facing Niger. It has also identified funding options for these improvements.
Alongside our collaboration with stakeholder organisations, this work is producing information to support the Niger: Strengthening Early Warning Services | CREWS (crews-initiative.org), a project aiming to enhance Niger’s food security early warning system, and establish a flood and extreme weather warning service focusing on urban areas and along Niger and Komadougou Rivers.
