Northern disaster forecasting system upgraded

Hanoi, April 11 (VNA) – A project on modernising the disaster warning and forecast system of the northeastern region’s hydro-meteorological station will benefit from non-refundable aid of the Republic of Korea’s Government.

The project, as approved by the Prime Minister recently, aims to improve the hydro-meteorological monitoring and forecasting capacity of the Hai Phong city-based regional station, which is under the National Centre for Hydro-Meteorological Forecasting.

To that end, it will upgrade the station’s infrastructure and provide intensive training for its personnel.

The project is scheduled to be carried out in 36 months with an estimated 3.97 million USD aid and 9.66 billion VND (46,000 USD) financed by Vietnam.
