Event Type Meeting
Date(s)(yyyy-mm-dd) Start: 2014-02-16 - End: 2014-02-18
Location Bangladesh Meteorological Department, Bangladesh Meteorological Department Abhawa Bhaban Agargaon, Dhaka, Bangladesh
Short Title CIFDP-B-NCT
Summary The objective of the CIFDP-B-NCT meeting is;
  • to review requirements for the ongoing development for an integrated Coastal Inundation Forecasting system for Bangladesh (CIF-B), and;
  • to discuss on the needs and gaps in sharing all data and information relevant to the inundation forecast process.
This meeting will be held in conjunction with the Work Package 1 meeting of the EU FP7 Resilience-Increasing Strategies for Coasts - toolKIT (RISC-KIT), which includes a case study on a Bangladesh coastal site (Sandwip island) that will complement the decision-making support through the CIF operation by using an advanced framework developed by European institutions (Coastal Risk Assessment Framework: CRAF). The user consultation component of CIFDP-B NCT and EU RISK-KIT WP1 will be shared through these joint meetings.

In the context of the CIFDP-B, a training session is organized for 15-17 February at the BMD Headquarters, for the meteorologists of BMD. This training is conducted by Mr Nadao Kohno, Japan Meteorological Agency, on the ongoing development of the Bangladeshi Coastal Inundation Model, that is based on the JMA-MRI storm surge forecasting model and is incorporated with the components for tidal effects and waves.
