The IAO supports the transfer of NWS technologies to countries throughout the world to advance the capabilities of foreign governments in the areas of meteorology and hydrology. IAO staff evaluates, designs, implements, and manages projects worldwide. In this role, the IAO organizes and manages project teams from the NWS, other U.S. government agencies or the private sector. Many of these projects are funded directly by other U.S. government agencies (e.g., U.S. Agency for International Development, USAID), international banks, or the countries themselves. Therefore, IAO works closely with both funding agencies and countries when developing projects.
