Information from the Event Organizers
InterMET Asia was launched in 2014 and is dedicated to forecasting, mitigating and managing the impact of extreme weather events and climate change in Asia, Africa and the Pacific.
It brings together the public and private sector at all levels – including meteorology technology companies, national and private providers of forecasting services, providers of weather risk management solutions, and public services and businesses impacted by extreme weather and climate change.
Supporters include the World Bank, the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction & Recovery (GFDRR), the WMO, the Hydro-Meteorological Equipment Industry Association (HMEI), the Singapore National Environment Agency and Meteorological Service of Singapore.
The event combines an International Exhibition of technology companies and service providers; an International Conference for weather affected public and private sector enterprises; and a Special Session sponsored by the World Bank and the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction & Recovery (GFDRR) which facilitates candid discussion between the public and private sectors.
To mark 2017 we’re extending the scope of the conference to address the issue of how meteorology and climate and ‘products’ can inform the design of key infrastructure and public services to make them more resilient and adaptable to increasingly frequent and intense extreme weather and climate change.
