Now Open: Innovation Call - Latin America and the Caribbean (Submission Deadline: 13 November 2023)

27 September 2023

The WMO HydroHub, in cooperation with the Inter-American Development Bank, is seeking to fund a project that will build the capacity of National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NMHSs) and end-users/institutions in the Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) region to use innovative hydrometric observation technologies or monitoring approaches.

It is expected that the project will focus on improving observation technologies or monitoring approaches that address known operational hydrometric challenges related to the measurement of water security, thus helping to provide the data and information necessary for water planning and management. It is also expected that projects clearly focus on supporting capacity building for the sustainable operational uptake of the technology or approach by NMHSs in the LAC region. Solutions should be suitable for operational use and their deployment should provide clear benefits to NMHSs in the LAC region. The focus is on freshwater quantity and quality observations, including surface or groundwater water levels, river/stream flow velocities and discharge, soil moisture and precipitation. Proposals should have wide geographical applicability, with the potential to help improve operational hydrometry in many different countries around the world. All proposals must however demonstrate a clear pathway by which their outputs will deliver benefits to low- or middle-income countries.
