Climate Change in Central America: Why Weather Data Matters


Central America, one of the world’s most vulnerable regions, is no stranger to climate change. Small scale farmers from Mexico through Panama are facing challenges as weather patterns change and extreme weather events become more common.

A joint report released by Catholic Relief Services, CIAT, and CIMMYT in October 2012, entitled ‘Tortillas on the Roaster’, discusses the climate realities facing Central American Maize and Bean farmers. The report findings suggest a 1°-2° C rise by 2050, resulting in water shortages, land degradation and increased crop losses.

These realities demand action- this was a major driving force behind aWhere’s recent expansion of the Platform to provide free access to gridded weather data in Mexico and Central America. Accessible and locally relevant weather information, limited in this region by a lack of meteorological stations, provides insight into weather patterns and allows farmers to make informed decisions.

aWhere’s gridded weather data are available at a 5 arc-minute resolution (approximately 9x9 km grid cell). These ‘synthetic’ weather stations offer visibility into localized weather content.

When Agriculture Meets Education: SNV and the Home-Grown School Feeding Program by Tarah Speck | Nov 18, 2014 In the heart of Central Kenya, smallholder farmers in Laikipia County are keeping thousands of children fed through the SNV Home-Grown School Feeding Program. In partnership with the Ministry of Education, local smallholder farmers sell their produce to schools as a major source of income, while ensuring that local children are provided at least one healthy meal a day.  The project requires multiple stakeholder collaboration, including SNV program staff, the Ministry of Education, participating schools, smallholder cooperatives and production companies. One of the four main objectives of this program includes ensuring effective monitoring, documentation, and reporting to scale up best practices and determine likelihood of replication.    To support this objective, SNV invited aWhere Data Analyst, Hannah Reed, to conduct a training on data management capacity building and aWhere platform use to build an online data management system for Laikipia County schools.  Hannah conducted a three-day workshop, September 29th through October 1st for over 40 teachers and education officers in Nanyuki, Kenya.  During the first two days, training focused primarily on data management best practices, data collection, and providing technical assistance to develop a final questionnaire for use in measuring outcomes for the SNV program. Upon completion of the training, approximately 70% of attendees reported they felt “very confident” in using the data collection tool.  hannah_snv_1  Day 2 with data management team from Ministry of Ed., SNV staff and HGSF Officers. Workshop led by aWhere Data Analyst, Hannah Reed. (far right)  On day three, the workshop focused on data management best practices and use of the aWhere Platform for data analysis. Participants learned how to enter paper questionnaire data into Excel and how to load and analyze overall program data in the aWhere Platform to visualize progress on objectives and determine best practices within their program. Over 95% of participants reported that the lessons on data management best practices were “very helpful.”  Hannah continues to work closely with the SNV team to finalize the questionnaire and ensure it aligns with stakeholder questions and desired program outcomes. The completed Excel templates will be sent to aWhere Professional Services for cleaning and validation before being loaded into the aWhere Platform.  SNV’s Home-Grown School Feeding Program is a 5-year program that operates in three countries: Kenya, Mali, and Ghana. By the end of the project it is expected that a total of 26,000 smallholder farmers will be contributing to the school feeding program - of which 30% are women farmers.  This is just another example of how innovation and partnership are helping farmers feed the world!    hannah_snv_2  The data collection team of teachers from the first two days of training in front of one of a participating schools.

Climate Change, Ebola, and a Growing Food Crisis: Does Big Data Have a Place at the Table? by Tarah Speck | Oct 22, 2014 child_holding_corn  The spread of the Ebola virus throughout West Africa has devastated thousands, and has become a global public health crisis as it threatens to spread beyond the region. Public health workers scramble to contain the virus while treating an increasing number of victims, but another threat looms as a result of this pandemic: food security. Food access already hangs in tenuous balance from a technology and information gap, and the virus threatens to plunge the region into a major food crisis.  Ebola has torn through Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, hitting hard the “bread basket” regions, directly impacting critical agricultural activity in the region. It has already vastly disrupted food commerce as farmers and their families fall victim to the virus, leaving fields abandoned and crops un-harvested, contributing to food shortages, Reuters reports.  "Hunger will kill us where Ebola failed," Pa Sorie, a 61-year-old rice and cassava farmer in northern Sierra Leone, told Reuters.  For Sierra Leone, 40 percent of the economy is agriculture-based, and government officials in Sierra Leone and Liberia acknowledge Ebola as a threat to food security and the need to act quickly.    What may be most alarming, however, is that this outbreak and subsequent food crisis may be directly related to climate change issues in the area, according to a 2013 report by International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI).  As a result of climate change and deforestation in the region, fruit bats infected with the virus have shifted their migration patterns to more populated areas, causing rapid spread of the virus across the region.  Likewise, climate change further impacts staple crops like rice through seasonal droughts, strong winds, thunderstorms, landslides, heat waves, floods, and changing rainfall patterns, making crop production extremely vulnerable.  But can big data play a role in diverting the catastrophic effects of climate change on global food security and the spread of infectious disease like Ebola?  At the The Makerere University Climate Change Research and Innovations Centre (MUCCRI), students are addressing just that.  In partnership with USAID and FHI360, MUCCRI focuses on building a hub of academic, professional development, and research excellence in climate science, climate adaptation and related disciplines. This initiative aims to build capacity to address critical issues of climate change as it relates to agriculture through research, policy development and implementation.  Students are conducting original research to create and share complex datasets, building a comprehensive database from which other agricultural researchers, agronomists, and other stakeholders both domestic and international, can draw conclusions. Maintaining high data quality and data management standards will be critical to the project as data policies and implementation practices are developed as a direct result of this research.  In September 2014, FHI360 invited aWhere Data Analyst, Courtney Cohen, to conduct a training for 30 MUCCRI students and other project stakeholders about best practices for data management and analysis techniques. Courtney discussed how the students could increase their data management capacity and maintain high data quality while conducting their climate change research.   100% of the participants reported that the data management training was relevant to their projects. Following the training, Courtney followed up with one on one discussions with participants to continue helping them build their capacity for data management.  We are anxious to see the results of this important research to increase our knowledge and ability to proactively address climate change as it relates to agriculture, animal patterns, and the spread of other infectious diseases like Ebola in the future.

Courtney led a training on the aWhere M&E (Monitoring & Evaluation) Platform and discussed how the students could increase their data management capacities and maintain high data quality while conducting climate change research.  The Uganda Education and Research to Improve Climate Change Adaptation is a four year USAID activity implemented by FHI360. It is designed to help establish MUCCRI as a recognized national and regional hub of academic, professional development and research excellence in climate science, research, climate adaptation and related disciplines.  The two, full-day trainings were well attended, with nearly 30 students and project participants receiving training. Each day, trainees reviewed data management practices necessary to maintain high data quality, and learned the critical importance of data quality.  Uganda training Oct2014-A  Students engage with the M&E Platform to learn how to maintain high quality data for climate change research.  Courtney also provided a general overview of aWhere and the M&E Platform. She also trained participants in the three modules – the data library, the data analysis module and the weather module. She also demonstrated the critical functions and features inherent to the platform that help maintain high data quality. Trainees received an in-depth training on how to perform functions such mobile data collection, importing their own data spreadsheets, sharing data, and exporting weather data.  Since the participating students are in the earliest phases of their climate change research, they were excited and eager to learn more about how aWhere’s M&E tools can make their project data easier to track, analyze and share results. After the training, Courtney met with students both in person and remotely to discuss study design, data management practices and database structure to ensure their project research is optimized for best results when using our M&E Platform.  Uganda training Oct2014-B  Courtney Cohen, Data Analyst at aWhere, leads training on the M&E Platform.  Courtney and the aWhere Professional Services team will work closely with each student as their projects evolve, and will provide assistance throughout their studies. We are excited be a part of this climate change research and look forward to a continued partnership with FHI360 and MUCCRI.

There are so many nuances to the term based on who and what company you ask, but we think this definition from Forbes is a good one: Big data is a collection of data from traditional and digital sources inside and outside your company that represents a source for ongoing discovery and analysis.  Big data has actually been around for decades (and was simply called “data”), but in recent years the term has become a hot buzzword in techie communities. Big data is everywhere, from financial institutions monitoring market trends, to media & entertainment tracking viewer/fan retention. Even the healthcare industry can now prove  a drug’s ability to improve patient health through big data.  But how far can big data go to solve even BIGGER world problems like global food security?  Weather variability, policies, and lack of access to resources are all factors contributing to the global food crisis. But at aWhere, we think that big data can and will solve global food insecurity.  Here are 5 reasons why:  Comprehensive 3rd party Weather Data = More Accurate Navigation of Weather Variability  Weather drives ag, ag drives economies. aWhere integrates weather data from thousands of ground stations and orbiting satellites around the globe. Thanks to publically available weather sources like NCAR, AWIS, and others, we offer the most comprehensive and accurate global weather system to date. For a free trial, click here.  Scale Up or Drill Down = Scalable Data is Better Data  Let’s take the example of palm oil this year. A serious drought was predicted earlier this year in Indonesia and Malaysia, the world’s top two producers of palm oil fruit. This caused the market to prepare for a lower supply and increased prices for consumers. Unfortunately for companies investing in this crop, the drought did not come, and a surplus of palm oil fruit flooded the market, negatively impacting the entire value chain from consumer pricing and demand, to commercial revenue, to the income of the farmer.  This is where big data makes its power play. By pooling data from dozens of reliable sources, historical, current, and forecast weather data is more accurate with less surprises than ever before. Big data lets commercial companies scale up to immediately take a global or regional view for larger value chain decisions. Just as easily, a farmers’ cooperative can drill down into the data to make immediate field-level decisions as local as 9 sq. kilometers. Scale up or drill down, this is a game-changer in the effort toward sustainable agriculture and global food security.  More Comprehensive Localized Weather = More Accurate Ag Decisions   Let’s take a closer look at how localized, field-level decisions can be made from big data.  Suppose we have a small holder cassava farmer in West Africa. Although he is illiterate, he is knowledgeable and open to new technology that will help produce better yields. An intermediary company with direct access to this farmer uses our platform to receive field-specific data that is immediate and actionable. Our information feed can tell them when to comb a field for a particular pest threat or when to look for a specific crop disease relative to the weather conditions of this season.  This same intermediary company takes this customized, field-level information and sends alerts directly to the farmer through a mobile app that uses icons to communicate with the illiterate farmer. This puts the farmer in control of his field with data that is immediate, accurate, and relevant to him.  Global data sets from third parties = Valuable Insights Alongside Your Own Data  Want to see what environmental, varietal, or socioeconomic factors impacted cassava yields in Nigeria from 2005-present to make more evidence-based future decisions for cassava producers throughout Africa? Big data can do that for you.    We pull public data from third party sources like the World Bank, FAO, and Harvest Choice and house it in an easy to use library to draw larger insights alongside your own data. This robust resource allows you to make larger global, regional or national decisions in the future, improving your bottom line or project objectives, while better feeding our world.     One Platform Houses It All = Easier Decision-Making at Your Fingertips  In a single platform, view big data for weather, agricultural insights and global information right in front of you. For example, with a few clicks of a mouse, you can see the comprehensive impact of weather variability, public health efforts, and farmer trainings on overall rice production in the Philippines. Big data really gets that specific, all in one convenient place.  And let’s not forget, all of this big data is stored in the cloud, so your information assets will never disappear from a missing flash drive or sudden staff changes. It is your data, forever.

The Ups and Downs of Palm Oil: Brief Take on A BIG Data Solution by Tarah Speck | Sep 25, 2014 Palm oil is everywhere. From lipstick to biscuits to biodiesel fuel, palm oil is a product in growing demand, particularly in developed economies.  A recent report in the Wall Street Journal announced aWhere’s expansion into the palm oil market in SE Asia.  Together, Indonesia and Malaysia account for approximately 85 percent of all of the palm oil produced around the world, and 4.5 million people earn a living from this cash crop. The governments of both countries have set aggressive targets for the use of palm oil in growing domestic biodiesel applications.    palm_oil_1  Palm oil fruit transported from a plantation. aWhere seeks to bring big data to palm oil companies to better navigate weather variability to produce stronger yields in the future.     When Palm Oil Takes a Hit, Farmers Feel it Most   Despite ambitious expansion plans, the WSJ suggests that these targets are not being met, resulting in palm oil prices dropping by 18 percent from March to July.  Earlier this year, overly pessimistic forecasts of a drought predicted a massive cut to palm oil yields in Indonesia and Malaysia. The drought did not materialize as expected, driving prices even lower as a more abundant supply entered the market than the demand required.    Guess who takes the biggest hit?  Farmers.  Like we always say at aWhere, “weather drives ag; ag drives economies,” and this is a perfect example of the critical importance of accurate, localized weather data in conjunction with actionable, field level insight provided directly to the farmer.  Despite palm oil’s slump this year, the two governments expect to forge ahead to expand production of palm oil in the long-term, and the future of palm oil is promising. As our company and product line expands into SE Asia, we ask the question, “How can our weather data and SmartContent equip the palm oil market, from high level decision-makers down to the farmer with the right meaningful information to make the most accurate, field-level decisions?”  Big Data in Agriculture: A New Competitive Edge  aWhere provides data solutions at the high commercial level all the way down to the hands of a farmer. Let’s break this down even more.  For decision makers of commercial growers and farmer intermediaries, aWhere products allow you to:  Navigate weather variability by accessing 30 years of historical weather data, daily weather and forecast data down to the field level. Analyze the palm oil industry at the local, regional and global level to make smarter investments and business decisions along the value chain.

Climate and weather variability impacts every aspect of life on this planet, most profoundly, food production. Heat waves, drought, torrential rains and powerful storms all create potential threats for farmers: decreased yields, crop disease, pests, and a host of other issues.  Over a billion people go hungry every day from global food shortage, and by 2050, we will need to find a way to feed a population of approximately 9 billion. Climate variability and growing climate change concerns leave us facing unparalleled food security challenges in the coming decades.  But at aWhere, we believe that access to the right data & analytics technology can transform food security initiatives and agribusiness practices worldwide to feed our growing population.    Through our Platform, the following information can be just as easily accessed by a small holder farmer in a remote, low tech village of a developing country as a large commercial grower:  Real time weather forecasts updated daily to drive every day field-level decisions Actionable insight for pest and disease alerts related to weather variability in their specific fields Alerts for optimal seeding and harvest dates based on rainfall, drought, and other weather-related indicators at the hyper-local level Recommendations on crop variety, fertilizer, and other inputs to mitigate risk and ensure highest possible yields Outside of North America and parts of Western Europe, the application of big data analytics to agriculture like this is virtually non-existent. aWhere knows that much of the world’s food sources are grown outside of these two regions, and seeks to make this technology accessible to underserved markets worldwide. We recently announced the opening of a new aWhere office in Malaysia so that we can expand our operations and target rice and palm oil markets in Southeast Asia.  Our SmartContent Platform is user friendly, and integrates seamlessly into any existing program or budget management tools you already use.

This is part of Colorado State University's Innovation Lab for Collaborative Research for Adapting Livestock Systems to Climate Change. This particular workshop was in Thies (pronounced “Chez”), Senegal - which is an hour east of Dakar.  map_senegal  The trip got off to a rocky start with flight cancellations and re-bookings due to the “Polar Vortex”, however the team was able to adjust the workshop a couple of days. aWhere trained approximately 15 people consisting of students, PhD’s and researchers. The project is designed to fund these students to develop proposals related to climate change risk and variability mitigation for livestock.  The aWhere Platform is a perfect fit for their needs and these teams absolutely need both weather analyses capabilities and data management tools to manage their project data. Stewart provided a general overview of company goals and platform, while Randy did a training session on the Weather module. Between these sessions, they both worked with individual students and scientists to collect requirements for the project going forward.  Randy_workshop   Randy Jeske training students on aWhere's Weather Module  One of the students representing the group summed their experiences by saying that “their expectations for the workshop were far exceeded by aWhere’s training and tools. They are extremely happy to have learned about the aWhere platform not only for this project but for future work they will be doing in their professional careers.”  aWhere will be returning to Africa in June to conduct another set of trainings for this project.  western_point   Stewart Collis and Randy Jeske at the westernmost point of Africa  Climate Change in Central America: Why Weather Data Matters
