In the Asia/Central Pacific region, a regional centre is hosted by the China Meteorological Administration for this project. It coordinates regional sand and dust storm monitoring and forecasting systems to provide timely observations, forecasts and information on sand and dust related weather over the Asia/Central Pacific region.
