Webinar (Sep 2, 2021): Working with farmers to develop accessible weather and climate forecasts – experience from the WATERAPPS

This webinar features a pioneering research and capacity building work under the WATERAPPS and WATERAPPSscale project: Integrating scientific models with farmer’s traditional wisdom to develop weather and climate forecasts. The WATERAPPS research showed that combining scientific with local farmer’s forecast knowledge and co-producing forecasts information results in improved climate and weather information services and has multiple advantages. This work also shows potentials to bridge the gap between existing national weather and climate services and the local needs in the context of Bangladesh. During the webinar, various activities and insights will be presented with some concrete examples, including the ‘weather club’ example where farmers jointly share, discuss, and prepare their farming activities according to the forecast information.
