World Bank-CARE for South Asia Delegation Visits RIMES Headquarters


On Monday, October 17, 2022, representatives from the World Bank visited the Regional Integrated Multi-Hazard Early Warning System (RIMES) headquarters in Thailand. The Bank delegation, composed of Climate Adaptation and Resilience (CARE) for South Asia project team members met with their counterparts in RIMES to review CARE for South Asia’s midterm progress and re-assess plans for project sustainability.

Mr. A. R. Subbiah opened the discussions by welcoming the delegates and expressing hope for further expansion of RIMES-World Bank collaborative ties. This was followed by a brief overview of key milestones and other project-related updates, including challenges encountered, solutions sought, and lessons learned thus far, from RIMES-CARE project team members. The Bank delegation underscored that sustainability mechanisms are a primary consideration going forward in the project.

The visit also provided an opportunity for RIMES to give the World Bank team a glimpse of the new features of the Regional Resilience Data and Analytics Services (RDAS), for gleaning feedback on these system updates, ahead of the first in-person CARE for South Asia Regional Workshop held on October 19-21, 2022 in Bangkok.
