The video "Protecting people from sand and dust storms" translated into Arabic and Chinese
In March this year, World Meteorological Organization (WMO) launched an informative video about sand and dust storms and their impacts on climate, human health and the environment among other sectors. The video was then translated into French and Spanish. The Arabic and Chinese versions are now released.
In the video, WMO highlights the importance of evaluating the sand and dust impacts and developing products to guide preparedness, adaptation and mitigation policies. The Barcelona Dust Forecast Center, as partner of WMO, plays a key role in this field, as shown in this documentary. Then, Kofi Annan, former Secretary-General of the United Nations, stresses the importance of international authorities and national and local organizations working together.
