World Meteorological Day, 23 March 2020

Despite the challenges and constraints of the Coronavirus pandemic, Maldives Meteorological Services continue to operate with most critical and minimal functionality. We celebrate World Meteorological Day on 23 March with social distancing and some of our staff working from home.

"The theme this year is Climate and Water which highlights the impact of climate change on present and future water resources.

The world now faces increasing challenges posed by water stress, floods and droughts and lack of access to clean supplies. There is an urgent need to improve forecasting, monitoring and management of water supplies and to tackle the problem of too much, too little or too polluted water."
