Press Releases

North Korea began to pay special attention to enhancing its meteorological capabilities in the mid-1990s. It sought to acquire sophisticated equipment from countries like China, South Korea and Great Britain. The North also received funds from international organizations such as the WMO (World Meteorological Organization) to improve its meteorological expertise.

As a result, North Korea's capablities in meteorological technology has made a significant progress. For the first time, the North is capable of forecasting the amount of expected rainfalls and providing more specific information in other areas as well.

However, North's progress was limited and that it has yet to modernize many aspects of its meteorological systems.
