WeatherForce has been created by Christine David and Pascal Venzac in August 2016, based on a common finding: it is not normal, given the technological progress, that there are still some blind spots in the world for weather and climate information.
Indeed, today, 70% of the world economy is dependent on meteorology according to the United Nations. And yet in 75% of the most vulnerable countries meteorologically there is no or little reliable, precise and effective information!
To break with this paradigm WeatherForce has developed a technically and economically innovative solution: The first collaborative platform for the generation of customized private-labelled weather and climate services to :
Local ecosystems with weather data to promote sustainable collaborative development
National Meteorological Institutes in most vulnerable countries to deliver highly local weather expertise
sustainable, high ROI and cost-effective solutions to provide reliable weather information anywhere
Customized end-to-end climate and weather applications for international private companies
Experts in meteorology, weather services and IT
