Our Mission

ICDP's REACH AND INTERESTS ARE TRULY GLOBAL

We are uniquely positioned to extend our collaboration with international colleagues to advance training and technology for partners around the world.  We work closely with international partners and partners in many global regions to meet the hydrometeorological needs for individual locations or entire regions.

ICDP focuses primarily on projects to improve rural and remote communication of meteorological information. To accomplish its mission, ICDP engages in the development of communication tools, provides training, and manages pilot and quasi-operational systems.

Impact-based forecasting

Low-cost instrumentation

Display and decision support

Next-Gen cloud-based modeling

WHAT WE DO

COMET staff have scientific expertise in many environmental science disciplines as well as in instructional design and education. As part of COMET’s international capacity development offerings, we have developed and provided a variety of innovative technology solutions.

COMET and ICDP implement technology and provide training through partnerships with universities, scientific labs, WMO, National Meteorological and Hydrological Services, NGOs, and private industry.

OUR STORY

The origins of IDCP begin with a program called RANET (Radio and Internet for the Communication of Hydro-Meteorological and Climate Related Information) in 2009

In order to address a wider range of communication issues, the International Extension and Public Alert Systems (IEPAS) program was born out of RANET

IEPAS evolved and expanded to become the all-encompassing International Capacity Development Program in 2014

The program has and continues to work in parts of Africa, Asia, Pacific region, Central America, and the Caribbean
