On Tuesday, March 19, Ambassador Williams delivered remarks at a ceremony during which the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) delivered 16 automatic weather stations to the Government of Suriname.
These weather stations will increase the capacity of Suriname to anticipate and manage the impact of changing weather patterns. Data produced from these stations will be used to make forecasts about future weather events which is important for planning in many important sectors such as agriculture, aquaculture, water resources, coastal zone management, tourism, and health.
This delivery is part of the U.S. government's three-year, USD $10 million Climate Adaption Project implemented across ten eastern and southern Caribbean nations.
