Fisherfolks from Sariaya, Quezon can now receive useful weather information to help them plan their trips to the sea via SMS. This is made possible by ISDApp - the community app that collects localized weather data, converts it to simplified weather forecasts, and sends it to the registered mobile numbers of fisherfolks via scheduled daily SMS.
The app was launched by Globe and iNON IT Solutions in partnership with NFRDI Philippines, BFAR Region 4A - Calabarzon, and the local government of Sariaya, Quezon. The pilot will cover 300 fisherfolks from 7 coastal barangays. The Community Launch was focused on training 14 fisherfolk leaders on how to register on the app.
The Department of Agriculture supports ISDApp as it is aligned to its vision of having a food-secure and resilient Philippines with empowered and prosperous farmers and fisherfolk. #OneDigitalPH #GlobeOfGood
