Data rescue support

Data Rescue support and backup services

ICPAC has been implementing DARE (Data rescue activities) within the Region in collaboration with the development partners. Data Rescue is No 3 on WMO priority list and RCCs like ICPAC are tasked to provide Data Rescue technical support to country NMHSs under their jurisdiction. PREPARED (Planning for Resilience in East Africa through Policy Adaptation, Research, and Economic Development) is a USAID funded project whose original objective was to strengthening climate information generation in the East Africa Community (EAC) Partner States.

It was later realized that they needed long data series for generating climate information to inform decision makers. A decision was then taken to support DARE activity in the EAC countries. ICPAC is working closely with USAID PREPARED project to implement pilot data rescue with TMA (Tanzania Meteorological Agency.
