OPEN call – New open call from the WISER programme

The DFID-funded WISER (Weather & Climate Information Services for Africa) HIGHWAY (high impact weather lake system) project has published a new funding opportunity. Funds are available for a research and fellowship opportunity in East Africa. The deadline is 05 March 2019.


For more information or to apply for this opportunity, visit the Met Office website


WISER is funded by the UK government’s Department for International Development (DFID). The WISER programme’s mission is to deliver transformational change in the quality, accessibility and use of weather and climate information services at all levels of decision-making for sustainable development in Africa.

WISER will:

  • Focus on service delivery, directed by user needs, which support poverty reduction and development;
  • Work holistically to inform climate risk decision making bringing together research, policy and practice;
  • Work with regional, national or sub-national plans, which have involved users; and
  • Work through existing and mandated organisations and channels where possible and appropriate.

The Met Office acts as Fund Manager for the East Africa part of WISER, including the provision of technical leadership, future programme development, programme oversight and by managing sub-grants of funds.
