Protecting people from sand and dust storms
World Meteorological Organization (WMO) has launched an informative video about sand and dust storms and their impacts on climate, human health and the environment among other sectors. WMO highlights the importance of evaluating these impacts and developing products to guide preparedness, adaptation and mitigation policies. Barcelona Dust Forecast Center, as partner of WMO, plays a key role in this field, as the video shows. Kofi Annan, former Secretary-General of the United Nations, appears in this documentary and stresses the importance of international authorities and national and local organizations working together.
