FARMING IS ALL ABOUT KNOWING THE WEATHER
Today, weather data improve the lives of many people. But, there are still parts of the globe where weather monitoring doesn't exist. That is exactly the case across much of the African continent.
CLOSING THE CLIMATE DATA GAP
The Trans-African Hydro-Meteorological Observatory (TAHMO) initiative seeks to install and operate 20,000 weather stations in sub-Saharan Africa.
LEARNING HOW TO FARM BETTER
In the upcoming century, world population will reach 9.7 billion people by 2050. We will need to produce more food - and for that, we desperately need more and better farming.
WMO RESOLUTIONS 40 & 25
The TAHMO initiative supports World Meteorological Organization (WMO) Resolutions 40 and 25 by giving free access to raw weather data for scientific research and government use.

"The global market for calories is now here. If we can generate more food production in Africa, it’s going to affect the price and availability of food around the world.
So, an entire continent having inefficient production and ineffective structures costs us all."
- Dr. John Selker, Professor of Biological and Ecological Engineering | Oregon State University
