Working together towards regional cooperation

SAF is a regional network working toward regional cooperation in facilitating exchange of hydro-meteorological information between Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, India, Nepal and Pakistan. SAF works with regional partners to ensure quality information through the Internet. All data pertaining to the region are sourced through the country node in order to authenticate the information.

The main objective of forming a regional partnership is three-fold:

  • To enhance the quality of information;
  • To ensure an authenticated source of information; and
  • To encourage participation and convey a feeling of belongingness among all regional countries.

The ultimate goal , however, is to channel relevant information and empower a coalition of national offices at policymaking level for proper planning and early warning and influencing the process and results of flood preparedness in the region by encouraging intergovernmental decision making.

Currently, only information pertaining to Nepal is available. This page links to pages devoted to the country profile and other relevant country-specific links. Please continue to watch this space for information on other partners.
