                     Method

   • Build on existing structures
   • Add only new components (the portal)
   • Avoid building complex systems that do
     everything
   • Build a modular system instead
   • Make data readily available
   • Highly consultative rapid development &
     implementation

              Feedback from participants

    Prototype available as of Jan 2012, operational
     version sometime after EC 64, 2012.
   Information should be consistent and accurate as
     possible.
   Fix country code discrepancies in PUB5, eg., BCT.
   Add Regional info at some stage (eg., Regional
     Climate centres such as ACMAD, link websites)
   Start with publicly available data for prototype, and
     establish procedure for adding new sources to basic
     structure. Possible restricted sections.
   Add financial figures at some level.

   Cautions to progress in an orderly fashion.
   Make online prototype portal available to
     WMO Members at large for review.

                        Outlook

   Main scope of the portal is to provide information
    from key databases, but

   • Portal can be used to let WMO Members
     manage information online
   • The data centralisation done for the portal
     makes it possible to use the data elsewhere
     (M&E)
