The report explains the role of climate data in informing decisions on when to plant and harvest, irrigate and fertilize and how to invest in drought resilient crops and livestock and more efficient irrigation systems.
Agrinteligente’s report on climate highlights progress, opportunities and challenges in seasonal forecasts, drought advisories and fire danger indices. The report focuses on agriculture and food security, one of countries’ top climate change adaptation priorities and given that progress towards tackling global hunger has recently been reversed.
Agrinteligente’s Chief Financial Officer, Ms. Giselle de Freitas commented on the report findings saying “Climate information and associated services have demonstrably led to improved agricultural and food security outcomes and benefits for stakeholders in the sector.”
“The capacities to deliver and access these services are highly uneven across regions and countries, however. The challenge is to strengthen the global-regional-national hydro-meteorological system needed to operationalize and deliver these products and services at country level, so that everybody benefits. The need for climate adaptation, informed by science, is now more urgent than ever.,” added Giselle de Freitas, Chief Financial Officer of Agrinteligente.
