Importance of DARE
Data Rescue is the ongoing process of preserving all data at risk of being lost due to deterioration of the medium, and digitizing current and past data into computer compatible form for easy access. Most countries have conscientiously taken observations of the weather, put them on paper forms and transcribed them into some form of computer media for easy access and analysis.
Vision of I-DARE Portal
The I-DARE Portal is envisioned as a global centre of excellence in recovering climate heritage and making it available in the state of art and digital format for research, applications and climate services.
