The on-line forum will discuss public-private sector engagement as a strategy to strengthen weather services and increase their socio-economic benefits to societies worldwide. A significant challenge faced by NMHSs in developing countries is lack of sufficient government support required to fulfill its public functions, improve and sustain weather and climate services at a level which optimizes the accuracy, timeliness and reliability of forecasts and warnings, and ultimately, optimizes their value and socio-economic impact to the country. WMO, the World Bank and other development partners are pursuing initiatives and strategies to address this challenge. One such strategy involves increasing the collaboration between the Public, Private and Academic sectors of the Global Weather Enterprise. The panel will explore inter-sector partnerships with the potential to increase the value of weather and climate services in developing countries: what are the key challenges and risks, what are potential benefits, how can an NMHS support for Public-Private Engagement get started, and are there other initiatives which need to be considered in parallel or as follow on?
