Tomorrow.io works with the World Bank to Leverage State-of-the-Art Weather Insights Technology

Boston, April 16, 2020Today Tomorrow.io, the weather technology company, is excited to announce a partnership with the World Bank and the Development Data Partnership, helping bring the world’s leading weather technology engine and software to developing countries. 

Through the  program which connects international organizations and companies, Tomorrow.io will make its data available across developmental sectors, joining existing partners including Facebook, Google, Uber and more who seek to expand their product reach to serve vulnerable communities. With the initial focus in Africa, Tomorrow.io will support efforts by the World Bank and partners to explore how big weather data, artificial intelligence, and machine learning can be harnessed to directly support COVID19 relief efforts. Tomorrow.io participated in a data clinic last week organized by the World Bank to share the latest thinking on the link between air quality and COVID-19 outcomes, in addition to economic impact.

 Tomorrow.io and the World Bank have also begun exploring use of advanced weather tools to contribute towards productive and resilient agriculture. For example, teams are evaluating how machine learning, environmental data and insights can be used to address the locust crisis currently devastating East Africa, which has already impacted more than 20 million people and calls for hundreds of millions in aid. 

“Predictive weather technology must be a part of the locust solution in East Africa, to identify at risk areas in advance before it’s too late,” said Georgina Campbell Flatter, Director of Tomorrow.io.org. “We cannot prevent weather events but we can predict them and share insights rapidly with those who are most vulnerable. In partnering with The World Bank proactively prepare to save and transform lives. By analyzing weather variables like rain, flood, temperature, humidity, across historic, real-time, and future forecasts we can identify which areas are most at risk.”
