Early Warnings for All – How to Invest Sustainably

The World Meteorological Organization has launched an ambitious initiative: Within five years, every person on this planet must be protected by early warning systems. While the mission sounds clear and it is backed by the United Nations, the path to achieving it is challenging.

In this episode, Jay Wilson explains the differences between monitoring networks in various regions of the world and the consequences of data gaps in developing countries. Jay has gained valuable experience in her time working for the WMO, on many international trips, and in countless discussions with weather professionals around the world as the Director for Business Development & Sustainability at OTT HydroMet.

Jay has a lot to tell – tune in and learn about:

  • The observation gap and its impact on societies in developing countries
  • EWS4ALL – the WMO’s initiative to create early warning systems for all within five years
  • How to sustainably invest in environmental monitoring systems
