“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. Also a web based initiative, it is marked by its unique automated platform and software to provide village wise weather trends that can be widely up scaled.
The advisories and met-forecasts are shared with the communities through phone and smses.
