International development cooperation

SMHI contributes to global sustainable development through international development cooperation. The overall aim is that all countries shall have an equal capacity to handle and plan for the effects of weather, water and climate. 

International development cooperation at SMHI focuses on strengthening the capacity of sister organisations and other partners in primarily low- and middle-income countries within our areas of expertise: meteorology, hydrology, oceanography, climatology and air quality. The work involves enhancing awareness through educational activities, advancing knowledge through research & development, supporting partner organisations with technical tools, methods and ways of working, and co-creating useful services for society together with local partners.
