Strengthening climate and weather service capacity – Marine meteorology system (MMS)
AFD is supporting Indonesia in the development of marine meteorology systems in partnership with BMKG (Meteorological, Climatological, and Geophysical Agency) which implements the project.

Climate change poses a serious threat for Indonesia, both socio-economic and economic, especially since 52 million people live less than 3 km away from the coast.

The 2018 GIEC report predicts an increase of typhoons, heavier rain and drought episodes. As such, it underlines the need for access to better data:

  • To assess the threat and the sensitivity to climate variations and extreme events;
  • To enable the modelling of climate change scenarios and projections;
  •  To study the impacts of climate change on economic sectors at national/regional level;
  • To enhance Indonesia’s scientific cooperation with WMO (World Meteorological Organization) related to climate change activities.

AFD supports the Meteorological, Climatological and Geophysical Agency (BMKG) to develop an integrated marine meteorological information system in Indonesia.
The project has 4 components:

  • Provision of equipment to reinforce the observation system and data collection
  • Creation of a centre for marine meteorology modelling and forecasting
  • Support BMKG in product dissemination
  • Capacity building.
  • A broad maritime observation network covering the whole Indonesian maritime area is set up and a disaster recovery centre to save all recorded data is operational;
  • Forecasting services, improved climate forecasting systems and trustworthy early warning system are developed
  • Integrated and user-friendly products and services are disseminated to coastal and maritime stakeholders, to the population and to the international community.
