As part of the Marine Service Delivery Context Analysis for the Caribbean countries, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) delivered a course between May 16 and June 6, 2022 to improve and deliver maritime services, safety and customer-oriented information regarding the weather at sea . Two persons from the Meteorological Service Suriname  took part in the aforementioned course. All this was realized in consultation with WMO, COMET, NOAA and CIMH.

Improving weather-related services should be a focus for all maritime stakeholders, raising awareness of the international standards set by the WMO. The focus has also been placed on the cooperation with international coordination agreements and the role of the METAREA and NAVAREA coordinators in ensuring consistent and reliable maritime services. All this, taking into account the publication of the Service Design of Multi-hazard Impact-based Forecast & Warning Services (MHEWS) and Common Alerting Protocol (CAP), with particular emphasis on weather forecasts for, among other things, wind, visibility, tropical storms and waves.

At the end of the course, a portfolio was put together regarding the various organizations and stakeholders, service design, stakeholder requirements and their applications in collaboration with international coordinators and services. The two participants received their certificates from the Minister of Public Works, Riad Nurmohamed. The Minister has urged them to use the knowledge gained for the benefit of the service, whereby this knowledge is certainly of eminent importance, in view of the development in the field of climate at sea.
