Climate Services for Resilient Development: Value of Climate Services

This video, produced by the Climate Services for Resilient Development (CSRD) initiative, features representatives from Ecuador, El Salvador, Colombia, Honduras, and Guatemala who describe how access to climate information and services is helping people, particularly farmers and ranchers, build resilience to adverse climate phenomena such as drought, extreme temperatures, and precipitation.

CSRD is an international public-private partnership committed to delivering climate services—including the production, translation, transfer, and use of climate information—purposefully designed to enable policymakers and decision-makers to address significant problems and create solutions.

March marks the onset of the dry and hot season in Thailand. In the region, dry vegetation coupled with small human-made fires often result in uncontrolled forest fires. Agricultural burning and forest fires, including transboundary haze, contribute to high levels of pollution. Forest fires release particulate matter (PM) into the atmosphere including PM2.5 which are microscopic particles with a diameter of 2.5 microns or less – 30 times smaller than the diameter of the human hair.
Climate change and population growth are increasing concerns for global food security. Greenhouse gases in the atmosphere have reached record high levels and the world is currently on track to overshoot the targets of the Paris Agreement, heightening the importance of developing technologies to help farmers adapt to climate change. This is especially urgent for the poorest and most vulnerable farmers, who already struggle to produce enough food.
Air pollution affects women and girls differently than men and boys. These differences include biological and socioeconomic disparities, and unequal gender norms that affect exposure type and frequency.
