Banasa inaugurates weather station to adapt to climate change

The banana producer in Guatemala, BANASA, opened a weather station that provides climate information in the area and will allow establishing sustainable practices for the use of resources.

The weather station has sensors that provide data on rainfall, wind speed and direction, relative humidity, temperature, solar radiation and atmospheric pressure.

Banasa has made an alliance with the Institute of Climate Change -ICC- to be part of the network of meteorological stations, where every 15 minutes climate information is updated, allowing better monitoring.

The director of the ICC, the Executive Director of the Association of Independent Banana Producers –(APIB for its initials in Spanish)- and Banasa’s Sigatoka Head, cut the ribbon at the opening ceremony of the weather station, located in Chiquirines, La Blanca, San Marcos . The participants of the diploma Course on Climate Change also attended the event.
