Funds Needed for African Weather Services

The World Bank is working with other development finance institutions to raise funding to modernise weather and flood forecasting services in Africa

The World Bank is working with other development finance institutions to raise some US$500 million to modernise weather and flood forecasting services in Africa.

Daniel Kull, a disaster risk specialist with the World Bank, says the bank is talking to lenders, including the African Development Bank and the Islamic Development Bank, about mobilising the funds to improve prediction, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa.

Meanwhile, experts say more accurate and timely warnings of extreme weather would help protect lives and assets from disasters.
