Philippine Red Cross taps Weather Solutions to close DRRM gaps

In a recent partnership agreement signed by Weather Solutions, it will be partnering with Philippine Red Cross (PRC) to overcome challenges in disaster risk and response through the use of highly accurate weather data.

Weather Solutions, the first weather-centric social enterprise in the Philippines, is the first of its kind that offers historical and real-time weather data, forecasting, and consultancy to organizations across various industries.

As one of its recent clients, PRC will be utilizing Weather Solutions data in its ongoing project entitled “Forecast-based Financing in the Philippines – Closing the Gap between Disaster Risk Reduction and Emergency Relief.” It is a 36-month project which aims to contribute to the reduction of humanitarian consequences of extreme natural events on the population of high risk areas.

Implemented under the technical support of German Rred Cross and Finnish Red Cross, the project needed the support to assess the forecasts that could be used in the forecast-based financing intervention. With this, Weather Solutions will be providing a detailed analysis of existing forecast for extreme weather events. The resident meteorologists of Weather Solutions will also be informing the PRC and tis teams of the weather-related hazards that shall be considered, as well as recommend the next possible steps.
