Official closing ceremony for the Strengthening Project


On February the 10th, in Jakarta, was held the official closing ceremony for the Strengthening Project. The event was attended by MFI and BMKG's executives of course, but also by representatives from Bappenas (Ministry of National Development Planning), Indonesian Ministries of Finance and Foreign Affairs and French authorities.


The ceremony was the opportunity for all parties to assess the successful completion of the Strengthening Project, three years after its coming into force, in November 2012. Today, BMKG is firmly engaged in a vast modernizing process of its infrastructures and organization, and visible outcomes have been delivered in the fields of meteorological observation, integrated information systems, PWS and warning capability.

The Strengthening Project stands out, on the international scene, as an exceptional example of efficient cooperation between two countries and a real step forward in the global context of fight against climate change.
