It is clearly demonstrated by the World Bank that the socio-economic impact of investments and efforts to modernize Weather Services is in the range of 5-7 to 1. It is estimated that in Europe, early warning weather systems yearly save several hundreds of lives, avoid between 0.5 – 2.5 billion Euros of disaster asset losses, and furthermore produce several billion Euros of additional benefits optimizing the economic production in weather-sensitive markets.
As the complex environment we live includes phenomena as diverse as heavy rains and floods, ice and snow, strong temperature and humidity gradients, sand storms or dust accumulation, intense maritime phenomena, strong winds, volcanic explosions and atmosphere effects due or not to human intervention, mitigating weather/climate risks requires a multi-tools overall approach.
