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.
To be the trusted private Philippine weather organization that helps build a #WeatherWiser nation
To empower communities to use weather knowledge in making informed decisions for disaster resilience through our localized weather technology, inclusive partnerships, and meaningful engagements
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.
We operate a premier weather forecasting system that provides free, localized, and accurate weather information as a public service to the Filipino nation.
We foster collaborations and empower communities on disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation through inclusive partnerships.
To fully appreciate the value of weather information, people must realize how having a better understanding of it can benefit them. We, therefore, put a lot of focus on developing campaigns that help expand our stakeholders’ weather knowledge, provide them with attractive user experience, and make use of the most effective online and offline channels to maximize our reach.
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.
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.
We also focus our efforts in implementing multi-sectoral capacity building programs such as the Community-Based Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (CBDRRM) training sessions and the strengthened #WeatherWiser Nation campaign. We are expanding our network and organizing more activities that will help our stakeholders mainstream DRRM in their policies and plans.
To date, WeatherPhilippines has partnered with 594 LGUs and private sector companies, and has trained more than 7,000 individuals from public and private sector partners.
Save lives. Enhance Livelihoods.
A #WeatherWiser nation optimizes weather knowledge for socio-economic growth and progress. It is a mindset that instinctively assesses opportunities and risks associated with weather.
