CASTRIES, St. Lucia, Apr 24, CMC – The St. Lucia government says it is undertaking a project that would lead to an improvement in hydrological and meteorological data and forecasts to help reduce disaster risks.
It said that as part of the Disaster Vulnerability Reduction Project (DVRP), it will strengthen its hydrological and meteorological services to provide more accurate climate data and forecasts.
“Hydrological and weather-dependent economic sectors such as agriculture and tourism require climate information to improve planning and decision making. For example, better information and forecasts of hydrological conditions, seasonal precipitation, drought vulnerability, and extreme temperatures can lead to determining the type of crop that can be profitably grown in a region,” the government said in a statement..
