    aWhere delivers agricultural intelligence to farmers, farm managers, crop consultants and researchers all over the world. The company aims at making agronomic and weather data available to farmers through intermediaries such as research centers, governments, information companies, mobile network operators and non profit organizations which can integrate the data into their own information systems. Thanks to the data and the information that was collected, analyzed and shared, farmers can more easily adapt their practices to variable and extreme weather conditions and they are more aware of the new technologies they can adopt ot perform better under the changing climatic conditions. This promising practices focuses on the current projects in Ghana and Kenya with Esoko and iShamba.

    The Laos Climate Services in Agriculture (LaCSA) system was developed by the Department of Meteorology and Hydrology (DMH) project Strengthening Agro-climatic Monitoring and Information System (SAMIS). The LaCSA archives and processes agro-meteorological and climatological data to provide agro-advisory services to next- and end-users. It generates and delivers tailored agro-met services to farmers by analyzing the meteorological data, agriculture data from national databases, and field level data collected by partners to produce seasonal (monthly) and real-time (weekly) agro-advisory in the form of bulletins. The bulletins contain district- and province-specific crop and livestock forecasted climate risks, pest and diseases risk advisory, and climate smart farming recommendations. The production of the recommendations was undertaken by the National Agriculture and Forestry Research Institute (NAFRI) and by the CIAT project DeRISK. Jointly these entities collected and systematized detailed agricultural data and experts knowledge throughout the country. The recommendations went through a series of revisions and validations based on feedback from local crop experts. The agricultural recommendations (presented here in English but available in Lao language too) are structured in tables. Rows list the farming activity, and columns contain farming practices by rainfall forecast compared to the climatological average, for which three conditions are possible: normal, wetter than normal, and drier than normal. This leaflet aims to promote fair access and transparency for researchers, development partners, and advisory users. LaCSA is a dynamic system and information can be updated and modified based on new knowledge and need. Authorized representatives will improve the recommendations over time.

    Lao Climate Service for Agriculture (LaCSA) 2020
    Also available in:

    The project "Strengthening Agro-climatic Monitoring and Information Systems (SAMIS) to improve adaptation to climate change and food security in LAO PDR” has the objective to broadcast the weather information and weather warning in advance to the public widely throughout the website. Climate change results in severe damage to agriculture sectors in the whole country which stems from a flash flood, drought, plant disease, and natural disaster. To respond to the risk of disasters, daily, weekly and monthly weather forecasts and weather warnings in advance are necessarily needed to inform farmers on time. The broadcast on the risk of weather prediction will directly benefit farmers in which impacts on farmers' crops and enhance farmers to access widely the weather forecast via the website.
