Through a recorded interview, our Executive Director Georgina Campbell Flatter shared TomorrowNow’s purpose and mission to a global audience comprising government representatives, private sector industry leaders and other key weather and climate stakeholders.
“TomorrowNow was founded to address the urgent need to adapt, act and prepare for a changing climate NOW” – Georgina Campbell Flatter, Executive Director, TomorrowNow.org.
Georgina Campbell Flatter engaged Neil Hausmann (Senior Program Officer for Gates Foundation) to discuss some of the priority areas that the Gates Foundation is focusing on as the world aims to feed a growing population, and why weather intelligence matters for ongoing efforts.
“We must all work together to provide the necessary tools to smallholder farmers for inclusive climate adaptation” – Neil Hausmann, Senior Programme Officer at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
Overall, there was a consensus about the opportunity to adapt the advanced weather intelligence capabilities by our tech partner Tomorrow.io to benefit #smallholderfarmers through TomorrowNow’s impact-focused work.
