: NOAA’s National Weather Service, Office of the Director of the Office of International Affairs is soliciting proposals for Capacity Development for Weather, Water, and Climate Forecasting and Disaster Risk Reduction (CDDRR). The CDDRR program’s goal is to improve the performance of all operational meteorological hydrological, and disaster/emergency management services worldwide. Improving agencies’ performance for enhanced decision support services is done through collaboration between operational hydrologists/meteorologists, scientists, and other staff with expertise across a wide range of environmental, economic, and social and behavioral sciences. These activities engage operational hydrologists, meteorologists, and researchers in development and implementation of innovative programs which are pivotal to the improvement of weather and climate early warning services in developing countries. All funding is contingent upon the availability of Federal appropriations. NOAA anticipates that up to $3,000,000.00 will be available annually, for a total of $15 million over five years. NOAA anticipates making one award for the five-year period and anticipates providing funds one or more times each year for five years. NOAA has no obligation to provide additional funding in connection with that award in subsequent years. Funding for each subsequent year of a multi-year proposal is at the discretion of NOAA and is subject to the availability of funds.. The actual annual funding that the awardee receives may be less than the anticipated amount and will depend on the availability of funding, the quality of the deliverables, and the satisfactory progress in achieving the stated goals described in project proposals, and continued relevance to program objectives. Applications should include information that demonstrates an applicant’s knowledge of the current status of and meet the technical and programmatic development and implementation requirements, including the structured and intense training programs, of the Weather Ready Nations (WRNs) and Global Flash Flood Guidance (GFFG) programs and address the objectives as discussed in the Program Objectives Section. Both programs have various projects and activities underway through other funding mechanisms and the applicant must be able to seamlessly support those programs. The applicant must also understand the current needs and requirements for countries in the process of implementing (or at least addressing) end-to-end, people-centered, early warning systems at national levels for multiple hazards. Most importantly, the applicant must have experience providing technology transfer and training to National Meteorological and Hydrologic Services globally. The applicant will be expected to work closely with the NWS/IAO partners in these programs such as the World Meteorological Organization (WMO).
