Weathering Climate Change

“Weathering Climate Change” is a short film that describes WOTR’s Agro-Meteorology component of Climate Change Adaptation Project and some of the real-time ground experiences. This component combines locale-specific Met-advisories and Agro-advisories for timely weather information to help farmers plan their agricultural activities.

WOTR has long recognized the necessity of stakeholder participation to successful rural development. CoDriVE-Visual Integrator (CoDriVE-VI) has the potential to greatly enhance participation while also closing a historically problematic communication gap between land users and land policy-makers.
