This field of expertise has a major role in improving other government agencies concerned with disaster risk management. Through the data available the government acts accordingly. When provided with accurate weather information the government will be able to plan well in terms of administering lands and making projects. For instance, in a place where there is lack of rain, the government might see it beneficial to maximize solar energy and make it a source of power in that community. When a particular place is frequently experiencing disasters the government might want to relocate the residents to a safer place. This way many lives could be saved from weather-related disasters.
