Hydrometeorologists from the Afghanistan Meteorological Department (AMD) demonstrated to WMO partners and donors how they are using the technology, infrastructure and weather forecasting skills they've acquired through the WMO Afghanistan Early Warning System project funded by @usaid. This is a critical step towards building AMD's capability for issuing #severeweather forecasts and warnings, including #flashfloods, to the Afghan people.

How much of our global #carbonbudget is left? If we continue emitting carbon at current rate of 11 gigatonnes, our budget could be depleted by 2025.

What is the global #carbonbudget? It quantifies how much #CO2 is added to the atmosphere by emissions from human activities balanced by the carbon stored in land and ocean reservoirs. It is also a highly valuable resource within a #climate policy framework.

Let us be continually thankful for the beauty that a healthy and balanced climate gives us! #Geneva #ClimateHealth #Summer #Rain
