Extreme Climate

Weather forecast for sustainable agriculture

Challenge Background

CREACC-NG works in remote areas of Northern Nigeria to help farmers adapt to climate change. Villages in Northern Nigeria have been disappearing due to desert encroaching southward; they were forced to vulnerable conditions such as food insecurity, loss of livelihood, and an increase in multidimensional poverty in the villages. The lack of weather forecasting systems continues to serve as an obstruction to many farmers in Nigeria. Farmers do not know when floods are coming, they do not have enough information on the change in rainfall patterns and the type of crops that will be best to plant.

What we are looking for

We need a good weather forecasting and monitoring system that can help farmers by giving them early knowledge. A system that can tell when to expect a drought, change in rainfall patterns, and change in weather that can help a farmer withstand a shock. We need a system that farmers can buy and install either on their phones or they can use as a messaging system that can inform them hands-on and in real time.
