In line with the goal of providing timely and localized weather and climate information service to the farming sector and to the community as a whole, the Center for Disaster Preparedness' Prosper 3 Rebuild Salug Valley Project through its Climate Information and Climate Resiliency Field School Program, turned over a set of Automated Weather Station equipment to the Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (MDRRMO) of Tambulig, Zamboanga Del Sur on Wednesday, Sept 9, 2020.
The Automated Weather Station (AWS) will be used to measure, record, and transmit weather parameters in the locality such as temperature, wind speed and direction, solar radiation, and precipitation. These local, real‐time weather and climate Information is important for the day‐to‐day agronomic management of all crops. Localized data collection and interpretations will also be beneficial for suitable planning of farming operations and better farming decision making.
The Municipal Local Government Unit of Tambulig through Municipal Administrator and MDRRM Council Acting Chairman Gilbert Colegado expressed gratitude on the initiative.
Operations including installation, data collection and interpretation and device maintenance will be handled by the MDRRM Office through Mr. Nilo Munoz, MDRRMO.
