Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is an island country in South Asia, and lies in the Indian Ocean. The population is right above 22 million people. Sri Lanka is vulnerable to floods and landslides, as well as tropical cyclones, heavy thunderstorms, drought, earthquakes, erosion and tsunamis.

MET Norway collaborated with the Department of Meteorology in Sri Lanka, where we so far have had one project: Strengthening the Forecasting System for Accelerating Improvements in Quantitative Precipitation Estimates for Flood and Landslide early warning in Sri Lanka.
