Insights

INAM has long sought a solution to strengthen near real-time transfer of manual surface weather observations from staff to an online platform - or directly into their forecasting tools. INAM will be testing our solution to validate if using SMS to transfer observations can help activate "silent" stations at priority locations and improve forecasts. And with capacity building, this Pilot between Water in Sight and INAM establishes a foundation for scaling up for greater impact.
