3 Free Powerpoint Templates Page 3 RIMES Member States

4 Free Powerpoint Templates Page 4 Purpose and objectives Purpose: Provide early warning services for enhanced preparedness, response, and mitigation of natural hazards, according to differing needs and demands of its Member States Objectives:  Facilitate establishment and maintenance of core regional observation and monitoring networks and ensure data availability for early warning  Provide regional tsunami watch within the framework of UNESCO Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC)  Support National Meteorological and Hydrological services for providing localized hydro-meteorological risk information within the framework of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO)  Enhance warning response capacities at all levels (national to community) within each national early warning framework

5 Free Powerpoint Templates Page 5 Governance Council  Heads of NMHSs/ national scientific and technical agencies generating multi- hazard early warning information, empowered to make policy decisions, on behalf of governments, concerning regional early warning arrangements for enhanced preparedness for, response to, and mitigation of natural hazards  Chair: Government of India Secretariat  Carries out the decisions and tasks assigned by the Council, and provides support to the Program Unit in managing the regional early warning center  Government of Maldives (Presidential Task Force led by the H.E. Vice President of Maldives) serves as Administrative Secretariat; Government of Mongolia (Ministry of Foreign Affairs) as Program Secretariat Program Unit  Responsible for the day-to-day operation and management of the regional early warning center and the implementation of programs and activities  Co-located with the RIMES regional early warning Center

7 Free Powerpoint Templates Page 7 Key services 1)Tsunami Watch Provision to National Tsunami Warning Centers  Seismic and sea level monitoring and data exchange  Provision of earthquake alerts and regional tsunami bulletins  Tsunami hazard and risk assessment tools for local coastal inundation forecasting 2)Support to National Meteorological and Hydrological Services  Customization of climate and weather forecasting models for generation of more reliable, location-specific severe weather and short- and medium-term weather forecasts, and seasonal climate outlook, having longer lead times  Downscaling of global climate models for generating high-resolution climate change information for national and local level planning  Development of decision-support tools  Translation of products of research into operational forecast products and testing these for local level application

8 Free Powerpoint Templates Page 8 Key services continued 3)Capacity Building on End-to-End Early Warning  Early warning system audits  Assistance in establishing and maintaining observation and monitoring stations of regional benefit  Training of scientists (in-country and RIMES secondment program)  Development of decision-support tools  Strengthening national early warning provider and user interface  Application of tailored risk information at different time scales in decision- making  Enhancing community responses to early warning
