Who We Are
WeatherPhilippines Foundation is a multi-sectoral initiative that aims to provide Filipinos with a premier weather sensing and forecasting system. Founded in 2012 by the Aboitiz Foundation and UnionBank, we seek to aid local governments and communities by making free, accurate, and localized weather information available for timely response to severe weather conditions through our website weatherph.org and mobile application. Our advocacy towards helping build a #WeatherWiser Philippines has now expanded to include 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.
Our Mission & Vision
To become A #WeatherWiser Nation by optimizing weather knowledge for disaster risk reduction and socio-economic development.
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 WeatherPhilippines 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 adaption through inclusive partnerships.
We seek to educate the Filipino public on weather and its significance in sustainable development.
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 750 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 568 LGUs and private sector companies, and has trained more than 3500 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.
