Enhancing Climate Information Systems for Resilient Development in Liberia (Liberia CIS)

Enhancing Climate Information Systems for Resilient Development in Liberia (Liberia CIS)

Liberia currently lacks the capacity to prepare for and respond to climate-related extreme events. This is due to inadequate capacity to process climate data and to plan based on short-term and medium-term weather forecasts, and the lack of an effective response mechanism to distribute aid efficiently to affected communities. The National Disaster Management Agency also lacks the financial and logistical support to function effectively, limiting its ability to undertake disaster risk reduction. 

The project aims to reach 7.7 million beneficiaries and to increase the resilience of Liberia’s population and infrastructure to climate change through:  

  1. improved hydrometeorological service generation and provision, in line with WMO requirements for establishing a functioning National Meteorological and Hydrological Service, 
  2. improved risk knowledge and awareness of both Government institutions and communities, and 
  3. mechanisms to better prepare and respond to climate hazards through an enabling environment, appropriate legislation, agency coordination as well as implementing an effective impact-based forecasting and forecast-based financing mechanism.
