Advancing Hydro-Meteorological Capabilities: WRF-Hydro Training kicks off in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

ICPAC IGAD , in collaboration with CONFER and Accelerating the Impact of CGIAR Climate Research for Africa (AICCRA), is organizing a one-week training workshop on WRF-Hydro at the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) campus in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. It aims to enhance streamflow modeling and forecasting in East Africa, specifically focusing on improving flood warnings.

The training brings together participants from universities and hydro meteorological agencies to develop technical skills for both research and operational services.

Experts from ICPAC, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), the University of Augsburg in Germany, the University of Calabria in Italy, and NORCE in Norway are supporting the training. It marks a significant milestone in addressing hydro meteorological hazards, reducing risks, and increasing resilience in East Africa.
