CLIMTAGTM offers tailored agro-climate indicators that are useful for impact assessment and adaptation planning. The indicators and the CLIMTAGTM user interface are designed and produced via a co-creation trajectory involving the developers at VITO, agro-meteorology experts and local stakeholders.
A wealth of climate data exists. Yet, these data are often inaccessible, due to their difficult format, inappropriate resolution or raw character that is not tailored to the need of stakeholders active in the field. We unlock these data by translating raw climate data into actionable information.
Agro Sector Expertise
Decision-makers in the agro-meteorology sector have particular information needs. Cooperation with experts from National Meteorological Services, Departments of Agriculture, the African Centre for Meteorological Applications for Development (ACMAD) and the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) helps to define these needs precisely.
