What’s the AClímate Angola platform?
On one hand, AClímate provides agro-climatic information from the past, helping potential users – especially government entities and financial institutions – to better understand the climatic risks affecting crop producing areas such as coffee, maize, soybeans and beans in the country. On the other hand, this platform provides seasonal agro-climatic forecasts with a range of up to six months, at the municipal level, which facilitates more accurate planning for crop management, allowing farmers to adapt their practices according to climate expectations.

In the words of Camilo Barrios, Senior Agroclimatic Modeling Scientist, AClímate becomes “a tool that allows us to learn from the past, understand the short-term future climate and, in this way, plan actions that maximize farmers’ profitability”.
