Partner Data Centres

International data centres like the GRDC ensure access to and use of data with a long-term perspective. We closely collaborate with other global data centres to improve the exchange of information and data, e.g. by the provision of special data products based on composite datasets.

Global Precipitation Climatology Centre (GPCC)

The Global Precipitation Climatology Centre (GPCC) provides global precipitation analyses for monitoring and research of the earth's climate. The centre is a German contribution to the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) and to the Global Climate Observing System (GCOS).

The Centre has adopted a demand-driven approach: within its fields of activity it will prioritise those activities that are prompted by the international groundwater community.

International Data Centre on the Hydrology of Lakes and Reservoirs (HYDROLARE)

Established in June 2008 as a global data centre, the International Data Centre on Lakes and Reservoirs (HYDROLARE ) closes one of the most critical gaps in surface water observations. The centre is hosted by the State Hydrological Institute in St Petersburg, Russian Federation, and operates under the auspices of WMO.

GEMS/Global Water Data Centre

The United Nations GEMS/Water Programme provides scientifically-sound data and information on the state and trends of global inland water quality required as a basis for the sustainable management of the World's freshwater to support global environmental assessments and decision-making processes.

Since 2014 the new GEMS/Water Programme will be advised by two expert groups: one Working Group on Data (to be led by Germany) and another Working Group on Capacity-building (to be led by Ireland).
