RIMES sub-regional hub

Work underway for PNG’s early warning centre

The hub was approved by the National Executive Council in August 2016, who committed about US$350,000 to establish the facility.

The PNG multi-hazard early warning centre will be multi-disciplinary and will act as a sub-regional hub for the Pacific Islands. 

Assistant director of PNG National Weather Service (PNG NSW), Jimmy Gomoga, said whatever products made will provide services to the Pacific Island countries.
