Britain is in danger of losing the contract to develop a European meteorological research centre based in Reading because of Brexit. Taking the lead in India`s Advanced Hydrological Forecast project to improve water forecasting and monitoring In addition to weather forecasting, India is implementing a number of EU-funded programmes, including two services from the EU`s Copernicus Satellite Earth Observation Programme for Atmospheric Monitoring and Climate Crisis. In September 2020, the Centre risks losing an enlargement treaty to Brexit.  The main objective of the centre is to produce accurate weather reports that would allow farmers to protect crops and achieve good yields. About 25 Lakh farmers in the region would be kept informed with information via various platforms such as WhatsApp, SMS, social networking sites and community radio stations. Welcome to the Mahalanobis National Crop Forecast Centre of Department of Agriculture, Cooperation – Farmers welfare, Ministry of Agriculture – Farmers Welfare, Government of India. The centre, named after the great Indian statistician P.C Mahalanobis, was created to implement the use of space and associated technology for better land prediction and drought assessment. It was inaugurated on April 23, 2012 by Hon`ble`s Minister of Agriculture. RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. – The RTI Center for Water Resources (CWR) has received a new mandate to develop a multi-week hydrological forecasting solution for three major watersheds across India. CWR will work with RTI-India, Vassar Labs (Hyderabad, India) and the National Center for Atmospheric Research, NCAR (Boulder, CO) to develop its international expertise in flow forecasting. Minister of Science and Technology, Earth Sciences, Environment, Forestry and Climate Change Dr. Harsh Vardhan inaugurated the North Karnataka Agromet Forecasting and Research Centre (NKAFC), Agromet`s first forecasting centre in India, at the University of Agricultural Sciences (UAS) in Dharwad, Karnataka.
Over the past three decades, ECMWF`s extensive research program has played an important role in the development of systems such as similation and modeling. This improves the accuracy and reliability of weather forecasts by about one day per decade, so that a seven-day forecast is now (2015) as accurate as a three-day forecast four decades ago (1975).  A source said this could depend on the UK reaching an agreement to continue participation in important EU environmental and climate research programmes, such as Copernicus, after Brexit. ECMWF makes an important contribution to climate variability research and guides an approach known as reanalysis. This includes feeding weather observations collected over decades in an NWP system to recreate past atmospheric, maritime and land conditions over certain periods, in order to have a clearer picture of how the climate has changed.
