Pakistan and France have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to deepen scientific cooperation in the field of meteorology. The MoU was signed by Moin ul Haque, ambassador of Pakistan to France, and Jean-Marc Lacave, CEO of Meteo France. The MoU will see both countries work together to improve Pakistans weather forecasting system, including developing capacities in the field of early warning and weather services with a special focus on the implementation of early heat wave warnings. Meteo France and the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) will also look at wind and solar power potential, including the establishment of a National Climate Center. Ambassador Haque is reported to have said that the project will benefit both countries through the sharing of information and exchange of scientific and technical personnel, as well as through knowledge transfer, joint studies and the research of subjects of mutual interest.
