An innovative system has been piloted in Satkhira where the weekly weather forecast generated by the Agromet Division of the Bangladesh Meteorological Department (BMD) is collected, interpreted and made useful for the farmers at the union level. This system considers the Union Information and Service Centre (UISC) (located within each union council of Bangladesh) as the heart of weather information dissemination. The UISC downloads the weekly weather forecast from the BMD website. In the light of the forecast, it seeks advice from the local government agricultural, livestock and fisheries officers to prescribe agricultural actions for the local farmers.
