1 World Meteorological Organization Working together in weather, climate and water Country Profile Database (CPDB) Project WMO; DRAwww.wmo.int WMO Rob Masters First Meeting of the EC Working Group on Capacity Development – Side meeting 12 December 2011, 10h00-12h30

2 WMO Congress and EC Mandate: Congress 15 - urged the Secretary-General to take immediate action to operationalize such a database and gather there all of the information collected by individual WMO Programmes/ Departments. The WMO Country Profile Database would optimize the number of questionnaires sent to the Members. EC LX, LXI and LXII – monitored the development and advised accordingly EC WG on Capacity Building – reviewed progress WMO Country Profile Database

3 Congress 16 Enhancing the Country Profile Database may provide some of the tools needed to better determine Members needs and progress. To strategically mobilize resources under the CDS, it would be helpful to establish a compliance database and systematic monitoring of performance of NMHS to be used in better understanding and addressing existing gaps. –Updated guidelines are also necessary when applied as a dynamic tool in affording a clear sense of direction and progress. –Such information would lead to the establishment of reference points, a baseline situation and to the development of Metrics to show progress. –It is noted that Country Profile Database could be useful to develop such tools.

4 Country Profile Database High-Level Goals Follow the status and development needs of Members Improve planning, implementation and monitoring of WMO related projects and activities Promote synergies between Members, the secretariat, cooperating partners, funding agencies and other stakeholders

5 WMO Databases are Independent * Selection of the more than 36 independent operational databases in the WMO Secretariat FinanceBudget Lists of contacts/focal points Volume A Pub 47 GTS performance information OBS Lists of contacts/ focal points GDPFS DRR capacity survey data WMO-No. 9 vol. D Pub 47 WDS Lists of contacts/focal points Operators of satellite receiving systems Manufacturers of satellite receiving equipment Satellite systems and user requirements information Space Lists of contacts/focal points TRAMAN FELMAN Members training needs and requirements ETR Training Library Services ETR IPA Contacts WMO Pub 5 CER METEOTERM LSP NMHS status information SPC Country information for RA II & RA V VCP Projects DRA Payroll HR Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)

6 Current WMO Information Acquisition Regional Associations Technical Commissions Members WMO Programmatic and Scientific databases WMO Acquisition Lead (e.g. S & T Programmes) Methods of information acquisition Surveying & Regular Reporting Members, Regional Associations and Technical Commissions asked to complete multiple surveys often with similar questions

7 Principles for Development of the Country Profile Database Single authoritative datasets (e.g. Country names) Leverage of Existing Processes: –Drawing from existing processes and data bases –Long-term: reduce number of ad hoc databases Compatible with WMO Technical Architecture Low Cost: –Efficient WMO knowledge management saves money –Off-the-shelf products Data Ownership –Members maintain information about their own country –Departments manage their data bases Common WMO survey and regular reporting tools Accessibility (e.g. web based) Phased approach –Can Add capabilities over time

12 Integration and Consistency of Information and Data IndependentFully integrated and standardized Current status Phase I Phase II Toward fully integrated and standardized information and data management Phase III……..

13 Questions?

14 Final Thoughts… A firm's IQ is determined by the degree to which its IT infrastructure connects, shares and structures information. Isolated applications and data, no matter how impressive, can produce idiot savants but not highly functional corporate behavior. Steve H. Haeckel U.S. author Thank You

18 WMO Congress and EC Mandate: Congress 15 - urged the Secretary-General to take immediate action to operationalize such a database and gather there all of the information collected by individual WMO Programmes/ Departments. The WMO Country Profile Database would optimize the number of questionnaires sent to the Members. EC LX, LXI and LXII – monitored the development and advised accordingly EC WG on Capacity Building – reviewed progress WMO Country Profile Database

19 PUB 5 Data and Information are Key to Development of the CDB Uses of Consistent Nomenclatures include: Common dropdown box for ease of data entry Common Lists for export to other applications (e.g. web applications). Common search terms for organizations, entities, key terms, etc. Common categories for information for each country Country Profile Database PUB 5 Data & Information Country name, Organization name, Legal/Administrative Basis of Operation Parent agency PR names TC & RA (names and sub-working groups, expert teams etc) Etc… Consistent Nomenclatures

20 PUB 5 Data and Information are Key to Development of the CDB Country Profile Database Example of possible Linkages to other WMO applications Example application dropdown box PUB 5 Data & Information Country name, Organization name, Legal/Administrative Basis of Operation Parent agency PR names TC & RA (names and sub-working groups, expert teams etc) Etc…
