Rainfall and Weather Data for Development
Our second project began in November of 2014 and continues through Oct 2017. Similar to the first project, this project is focused on making agro-meteorological data available to users throughout the development community, including small-farmers, agriculture advisory services (public and private), ag-input supply organizations, research organizations, etc. We are pleased to again be partnered with aWhere, whose data are location specific and include historical – observed data back through 2008. This project has two closely related primary outcomes. Making these data more easily accessible and adaptable to the work flows of development community users is the “so what” of the project. The second outcome is crucial and includes efforts to sustain the long-term availability and access to these data for the same users. This project is made possible through a Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation funded grant.
