Weather services make critical contributions in enhancing the efficiency of weather-dependent sectors of the economy; and in managing risk in weather-dependent economic sectors such as agriculture, transport, water, etc. which underpin the economic growth in the region. Resilience can be strengthened through regional and global cooperation as countries invest in early warning systems and modernize weather and forecasting services. Due to the evolutionary nature of weather, regional collaboration can help improve understanding of changing weather patterns, devise effective response strategies, lower investment costs, and foster regionally relevant technological innovation, and address challenges related to modernization and sustainability of weather services.
