Reliable hydro-meteorological observations and forecasts are critical to implement better water resources management practices and policies. The proposed project, implemented by the World Meteorologiccial Organization (WMO) and the iMoMo consortium will combine traditional with new and decentralized monitoring approaches based on crowd-sourcing with mobile phones, bringing decision-relevant information faster to the users.

Today, data on water remain scarce, fragmented and difficult to access and interpret. This hampers effective decision-support for integrated water resources management (IWRM), translating into water insecurity. Many countries are unable to provide accurate, timely, and coherent information and forecasts that meet user needs. This increases societal vulnerability to natural hazards and inhibits socioeconomic growth.
Development of a reliable base of hydrological data to foster evidence-based policy, decision-making and conflict resolution in water resources management at global, transboundary, national and local levels.
Key stakeholders of GHSF: National operational services, river basin authorities, data centers (at global and regional levels), research groups and institutions, developers of new technology, providers of hydrometry education and training programs, NGOs and UN-Organizations.
Key stakeholders of iMoMo outscaling: Pangani Basin Water Office, Ministries of Water in the respective countries, FAO, Water and Land Resources Centres, local Water User Associations.
Beneficiaries: National and regional hydrological services and their users in various sectors of the economy (agriculture, energy, water supply etc.). Local communities and farmers that benefit from data related conflict resolution and more equitable water allocation.
GHSF provides an efficient, innovative and sustainable framework to support operational systems in hydrometry and water monitoring of national hydromet services, and facilitates free and open data sharing.
GHSF strengthens fit-for-purpose and sustainable monitoring capabilities through innovation in applied monitoring systems for the benefit of local water users and national hydromet services, as well as decision-makers at the national, transboundary and global level.
Local beneficiaries are engaged in crowd-sensed innovative monitoring and modelling of hydromet data to enhance coverage and availability of hydromet data in six countries at transboundary, national, sub-catchment or local community levels.
