Climate risk impacts on various fields

Climate risk impacts on various fields

JMA is making efforts to develop best practices

to use climate information in various sectors.

Impacts on

Agricultural products

Impacts on

Retail selling

- Cold/heat waves hinder the growth of agricultural products.

- Heavyrainfall or drought causes destruction of crops.

- Cold/heat waves damage the selling of clothes and electric appliances.

Impacts on

Human Health

- Heat waves increase the risk of heat stroke.

And so on…


A pilot project for agriculture rice production

A pilot project for agriculture: rice production

Impacts on

Rice production

- Cold/hot summer conditions cause damage to rice.

Tailoring and experimental provision

Tailoring and experimental provision

  • The agricultural research institute (NARO/TARC) tailors temperature prediction to customized information for agriculture.

  • Farmers can view the information for their registered pointson the Internet and receive an alert

  • by e-mail.

Tailoring and experimental provision1

Tailoring and experimental provision

- On 7 Aug., 2012, predicted probability of temperatures of ≥27 ºC was 57% (normal: 20%) during the period from 15 to 21.

- The agricultural research institute called farmers to take countermeasures controlling water depth in their rice fieldsto avoid poor grain filling in rice crops.

Japan s pilot project on user interface platform for agriculture

Spreading best practices

  • JMA provides the results of the pilot project to other sectors and the public.

  • JMA and the Agricultural Research Institute started collaborative projects for other regions than Tohoku (in northern Japan).

  • JMA initiated dialogue, sharing knowledge and climate risk assessments with other user sectors (e.g. apparel, energy) to develop tailored information.
