Bangladesh Agro-Meteorological Information System Development Project (AMISDP) Director Visits SERVIR Science Coordination Office (SCO)

Shah Kamal Khan, Project Director for AMISDP, visited the SERVIR SCO at the National Space Science and Technology Center (NSSTC) April 25th - 28th, 2022. AMISDP is funded by the World Bank and implemented by the Bangladesh Department of Agriculture Extension (BDAE). The purpose of the visit was to identify points of collaboration with the SCO and ways in which SERVIR tools and resources can be of assistance to the Bangladesh Department of Agricultural Extension (BDAE). The main product of AMISDP is the Bangladesh Agro-meteorological Information System (BAMIS), which intakes data from the Bangladesh Meteorological Department (BMD) and the Bangladesh Water Development Board (BWDB) and is then analyzed by a technical committee at BDAE to issue agriculture advisories. During Khan’s visit, he engaged with technical experts at SCO to discuss severe weather warning systems (including incorporation of the High Impact Weather Assessment Toolkit (HIWAT) into BAMIS advisories), arable land mapping, and capacity building.
