Why have weather forecasts improved?

Technological developments have underpinned the increase in accuracy of weather forecasts. In particular, from the mid-1960s the use of increasingly sophisticated numerical models coupled with an enhanced availability of observations have led to modern five-day forecasts being as accurate as one-day forecasts 50 years ago. These developments will be discussed along with benefits of having accurate weather forecasts.

Increasing Climate Change Demands High System Resilience and Sustainable Asset Management Practices at SIDS

Small island nations face unique and acute challenges due to climate change. Rising sea levels, extreme weather events, and ocean acidification are among the threats they confront. To mitigate these risks, they must prioritize high system resilience and sustainable asset management practices. SIDS needs to focus on building resilience right from the infrastructure to ecosystems. Infrastructure development should prioritize sustainability, considering the long-term impacts of climate change.
