IMD develops a village-level weather forecast system to mitigate crop losses due to climate change
New Delhi, September 5 () The Department of Meteorology of India plans to develop a weather forecast system at village level, which covers an area of 2-3 kilometers, to mitigate the loss of crops and livestock due to climate change said a senior official Thursday.
Speaking at the Global South Media Briefing on Desertification by the Center for Science and the Environment, IMD deputy director general SD Attri said that climate change is the biggest threat facing the world and that economic losses are a important part of him.
To mitigate the impact of climate change on crops and livestock, the IMD plans to develop a village-level weather forecast system that covers an area of 2-3 kilometers, he said.
I also want to clarify that the forecast may not be 100 percent correct, but our goal should be to reduce losses to property and livestock, he added.
He said that 20 years ago, the forecast could be given at the state level, but now it has been reduced to the district and block level, which has about 12 kilometers of area.
Noting that India is warming up, Attri said that although the number of cyclones is decreasing but its fury is increasing. Therefore, we need more experience to learn to manage it, he said. UZM UZM ABH ABH
