Data Rescue in Tanzania

A network of more than 2000 rainfall stations exists in Tanzania where large percentage of its historical climate data are still in paper form and at greater risk of being lost as the paper is deteriorating very fast. Only about 30% of the historical data has been digitized mostly rainfall and temperature.

It is expected that by the year 2020, at least 70% of all meteorological parameters will be digitised through various initiatives.
