Regional Activities

To support WMO member states' activities and create an international network of expertise, WWRP is involved in several regional research projects:

Regional Activities (2024 -2027)


Countries involved




WISER – EWSA (Weather and Climate Information Service - Early Warnings for Southern Africa)


Mozambique, Zambia, South Africa, United Kingdom


To reduce disaster risk through the co-production of new weather information services and early warnings.

Region I and VI

Aviation RDP

South Africa (Johannesburg), United Kingdom (London), Hong Kong, Singapore.

2021- 2025

To focus on nowcasting, aviation weather, including the undertainty/confidence estimation over the Terminal Control Area for the next 0-6 hr.

Region I, VI and II

Tropical Cyclone - Probabilistic Forecast Products  (TC-PFP)

All RSMCs for TCs included.


Provide a single and centralized source for the media and general public to access official warnings and information issued by National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NMHSs) efficiently.

Region II, III, IV, V, VI

Polar Coupled Analysis and Prediction for

Services (PCAPS)

In Arctic and Antarctica

2024 -2027

Improved observation and modelling to provide  a  better understanding of  the  Arctic amplification  mechanisms  through  an  improved understanding  of  physical  processes  in  the  polar regions.


Region II, IV, VI

Survey to gauge nowcasting capabilities

Multiple countries involved.

2021 - ongoing

To evaluate nowcasting systems available in the different WMO Regional Associations, with a particular focus on developing countries, and types of warnings generated on severe weather.

Region III, I, II, IV, V, VI

Paris Olympics 2024


2020 - 2024

Advance research on the theme of the “future Meteorological Forecasting systems at 100m (or finer) resolution for urban areas”. Such systems would prefigure the numerical weather prediction at the horizon of 2030.

Region VI

TeamX (Multi-scale transport and exchange processes in the atmosphere over mountains – programme and experiment)


2018 -2024

Improve our understanding of exchange processes in the atmosphere over mountains and at evaluating how well these are parameterized in NWP and climate models.

Region VI

MedCyclones (European network for Mediterranean cyclones in weather and climate)

Multiple countries involved.

2020 - 2024

Coordinate the activities of researchers in meteorology and climatology and scientists from weather/climate services to provide a deeper understanding of Mediterranean cyclones and improve the European capacity to predict their environmental and climate impacts.

Region VI
