This is a new service which is being created in the country A really meaningful intervention of the CIRDA project in the country. Training of data management center technician This imply training of staff Training of observers Assistance is required to have a team fit for the purpose Implementing Progress and Key Successes - CONPREC

National Council for the Prevention and disaster response Created in 2011 but rendered operationnal through EWS STP Goal: CONPREC is the institution responsible for management and responses in case of natural disasters at national level.

Two platforms one for monitoring and alert and other for dissemination an response were created to work together with CONPREC in order to help the country in situation related with risk prevention, reduction and management Progress and Key Successes and Opportunities CIRDA MISSION create a huge opportunity for each country on this projeto because all of us have the opportiny to learn with other

experience, to see how the other country his dealing with the same problema we are facing in outr country Mozambique it's another portuguese speaking country in Africa who have a lot experience with risk reduction of disaster. Through this project we manage to create a south south cooperation with National institute of risk reduction (INGC) where the coordinator of platforms and one meteorologist went there to see how they work and how can use their experience in the country Implementing Progress and Key Successes


Last Mile Next Steps Finalization and operationalization of the hydrometeorological stations Full Operationalization of the two Platforms National Simulation exercise through the National contingence Plan Acquisition of Emergency kits for local Committee. Training in first aid for Local Committees

Last Mile Next Steps PPPi with Community Radio for the dissemination of EWS bulletins Formulation of an Exit strategy Identification and defining the needs of our end-users and stakeholders Operationalization of Community Radio in Ribeira Afonso and second training of Journalists Establishment of the 321 communication system in the country with telecom companies
