Agroclimatology Team Contacts

Agroclimatology data are critical parts of FEWS NET’s knowledge base. These data include remote sensing imagery, historical rainfall totals, climate change analysis, forecasts, and an understanding of climate drivers like the El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO). The FEWS NET Agroclimatology Team relies on the following partners to carry out and support agroclimatology data collection, contributing to the basis of FEWS NET’s integrated food insecurity analyses.
