WEATHER PHILIPPINES SLIDER 4 version 2

Who We Are

WeatherPhilippines Foundation, Inc., founded in 2012 by the Aboitiz Foundation and UnionBank, is a multisectoral initiative that aims to provide Filipinos with a premier weather sensing and forecasting system. We seek to provide local governments and communities with free, accurate, and localized weather information for a timely response to severe weather conditions. Information is available through our website, weatherph.org, and our mobile application. Our advocacy towards helping build a #WeatherWiser Philippines has now expanded to include the optimization of weather knowledge for socio-economic growth and progress.

Supporting WeatherPhilippines’ proactive direction is new technology supplier Meteologix AG, an international weather information provider based in Switzerland. Led by Joerg Kachelmann, Meteologix seeks to introduce innovative weather tools and systems.

Vision

To be the trusted private Philippine weather organization that helps build a #WeatherWiser nation

 

Mission

To empower communities to use weather knowledge in making informed decisions for disaster resilience through our localized weather technology, inclusive partnerships, and meaningful engagements

History

Every year, 10-20 typhoons enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR). And every year, we spend Php 9-10 billion for post-disaster recovery initiatives.

This insight pushed the private sector to change our approach to disasters, from a costly and reactive method, to a more proactive, collaborative, and sustainable model.

Thus, the Aboitiz Group established WeatherPhilippines Foundation in 2012.

Through localized weather technology, inclusive partnerships, and meaningful engagements, WeatherPhilippines delivers free, more localized, and accurate weather information accessed through weatherph.org, and the free WeatherPH mobile application.

Our Strategy

Technology

We operate a premier weather forecasting system that provides free, localized, and accurate weather information as a public service to the Filipino nation.

Partnerships

We foster collaborations and empower communities on disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation through inclusive partnerships.

Engagement

We seek to educate the Filipino public on weather and its significance in sustainable development.

Our Programs

Automated Weather Stations (AWS)

We build the infrastructure – WeatherPhilippines deploys Automated Weather Stations (AWS) all over the country, and installs them in communities vulnerable to frequent weather disturbances. These AWS record a specific location’s rainfall, wind speed, wind direction, temperature, pressure, humidity, and global solar radiation. More than 800 AWS has been deployed nationwide since 2012.

Capacity Building Programs

We build our partners’ capacity – WeatherPhilippines trains communities and partners on how to install the AWS, and how to use weather data for their development programs in disaster-risk reduction, and business continuity.

WeatherPhilippines also created Weather 101 and Tropical Cyclone 101 trainings, which laymanize technical weather terms and help participants assess the impact of weather on their lives and livelihoods. Separate modules are customized for LGUs and businesses.

To date, WeatherPhilippines has partnered with 591 LGUs and private sector companies, and has trained more than 6,400 individuals from public and private sector partners.
