China is working to establish a weather disaster risk management system based on early warning, said Chao Qingchen, director of the National Climate Center. “Global warming has led to an increase in the frequency of extreme weather disasters,”

China celebrates National Day for Disaster Prevention and Reduction on May 12 every year. According to Chao, the country has developed real-time monitoring and risk assessment technologies for major disasters such as typhoons, storms, droughts, high and low temperatures.

China will strengthen tracking and analysis of extreme weather conditions, carry out more research on disaster-causing mechanisms, and enhance disaster risk prevention capabilities.

To improve meteorological services, Chao said more efforts will be made to adapt services to various sectors such as agriculture, transportation, energy supply, healthcare and tourism.
