INAM has long sought a solution to strengthen near real-time transfer of manual surface weather observations from staff to an online platform. From southern to northern Mozambique, INAM is testing our solution at 15 synoptic stations. Their Readers will send daily observations of rainfall and temperature - thereby overcoming the lengthy and manual work of transcribing observations captured on paper and sent by post. With capacity building, this co-designed Pilot between Water in Sight and INAM establishes a foundation for scaling up for greater impact and use of data to improve forecasts.
INAM and Water in Sight kicked off deployment in February 2023.
