SMHI contributes to capacity development of organizations and institutions in developing countries. Our main focus is on water and climate services, and education. We cover the entire value chain from observations and data collection, climate modelling, operational hydrology, hydrological modeling and research, data generation and storage, IT infrastructure, to wide scale operations in the development and deployment of effective forecasting and early warning services. We have a unique expertise in Climate Change, with the Rossby Centre, the Knowledge Centre for Climate Adaptation and the CORDEX International Project Office all under one roof. We also have the mandate to coordinate Sweden's contribution to the IPCC.
