Climate monitoring

Ongoing since Spring 2020

Planting Change, with partners CENICA and Centro Humboldt, implemented a climate monitoring education program and station at Colegio Teresiano and Colegio Santa Teresa de Jesús, with 1400 participating students. Students monitor and record rainfall, analyze data patterns, and study the relation to climate change, water access, and food supply. Teachers were trained to continue leading the program, thus strengthening the overall math and science curriculum through practical application. Students share the collected data with the 300-station Community Climate Observation Network, which provides projections and recommendations informing agricultural production throughout Nicaragua. (Spring 2020, onward)
