WOTR is partnered by the India Meteorological Department (IMD) in its Agro-Meterology efforts. The IMD guides WOTR in weather station installations, weather predictions as well as in providing agro advisories.
One automated weather station (AWS) has been installed at IMD’s observatory for verification of AWS data output with actual observations by IMD. Automated Weather Stations were also installed in all the 29 (CCA) villages and are functioning now. Display boards of daily weather information have been installed at prominent places in every village so that people are informed about this.
Localized Met-advisories and Agri-met advisories are in demand and they can be very much useful in giving timely information to farmers so that they can plan their agricultural activities accordingly.
WOTR is also in the process of designing and building a Content Management System to store crop related general information, weather conditions affecting crops for major pest and disease incidences, cultural practices of controlling pest and diseases, general agri-management practices, crop calendar, other crop details are updated in this database.
Tools & Frameworks
Strategies & Approaches
...reducing vulnerability of local communities by uniquely combining weather based scientific advisories for enhancing agricultural production, biodiversity conservation, enabling carbon neutral communities, disaster risk reduction and localization.
Papers & Perspectives
Biodiversity plays a crucial but often underestimated role in the mitigation of climate change.
A localized economy is more likely be able to adapt to Climate Change and will simultaneously contribute to reducing carbon emissions by having a smaller carbon footprint.
Solar energy has been proposed as a major piece of the renewable energy puzzle over the last few years... but how renewable is the means of processing that energy?
