Weather Impact provides agribusinesses with easy to access, reliable weather and climate information. Our mission is to optimize global food production and support climate adaptation. Our services are flexible, tailor-made, and available in various languages across Africa, Asia and Europe. Right now over 400,000 farmers receive weather forecasts and farm management advisories directly on their mobile phones, either via simple text messages or mobile phone application.
Our accurate weather alerts, seasonal forecasts and climate risk analyses supports stakeholders in the agricultural sector and strengthens their resilience in a changing climate. Reliable local weather data reduces losses and helps optimize global food production.
We partner with various private companies, NGO’s, Research institutes and National Meteorological Agencies to reach farmers in the last mile with crucial weather and climate information. By helping local partners to build up capacity and give them the needed training, we contribute to the usability and legacy of the service, which creates real added value.
