Sub-Saharan Africa Delegates Meeting at Earth Networks Headquarters

  • Sep 29, 2015

blogimageWe were honored to host 28 senior delegates from sub-Saharan Africa today in our office headquarters.  This opportunity was made possible by the U.S. Trade and Development Agency, who designed a detailed training program – 2015 Sub-Saharan Africa Climate Information and Early Warning Training Program for this esteemed group.

The Training Program was designed to introduce delegates from across sub-Saharan Africa to U.S. products and services for climate information and high-impact weather early warning systems, while providing advanced skills training and familiarization with the latest meteorological technologies and industry best practices. The Training Program is supporting the adoption of modern technology funded under the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) Global Environment Facility aimed at advancing climate resilient development and adaptation. Participating delegates included individuals from the national hydro meteorological service (NHMS) or equivalent agencies in sub-Saharan Africa.

We would like to thank USTDA for giving us a day on this training agenda.  We were excited to share with this group of delegates our unique, industry first in-cloud detection, which powers our leading Early Warning System capabilities.  Our advanced warning capabilities enable robust, affordable, accurate and reliable severe weather nowcasting and alerting for developing countries.
