Short summary
The weather information value chain is a framework that describes how information is produced, communicated, and used in an end-to-end warning system for weather and hazard monitoring. A project under the WMO aims to explore value chain approaches to describe and evaluate high-impact weather events. The project developed a template for high-impact weather event case study collection, which allows scientists and practitioners to assess the effectiveness of warning value chains.
