New Podcast Episode: How Climate Change Affects Environmental Monitoring

Podcast episode 10 Title Image

Understanding and fighting climate change is on top of the agenda for most countries in the world. Currently, politicians, scientists, and activists are gathering at COP26, the 26th UN Climate Change Conference, and pointing out the growing demand for early warning systems and weather monitoring networks. Ashish Raval, VP Global Tenders, Projects & Key Opinion Leaders at OTT HydroMet, has a lot to tell about these systems. Since more than 20 years, Ashish is setting up hydrological and meteorological stations in critical places around the globe.

From post-Katrina New Orleans to the Himalayan to the Caribbean; in our tenth episode, Ashish shares some stories and learnings he gathered on his journey. Furthermore, he speaks about the challenges different regions pose to environmental monitoring suppliers. Tune in to learn:

  • Why climate change is on top of the agenda for most countries 
  • How OTT HydroMet set up an early warning system after a disastrous Glacier Lake Outburst Flood (GLOF) in Bhutan 
  • Different regions hold different challenges, or in Ashish’s words “No shoe fits all”

Ashish Raval and his team are happy to share their knowledge and experience to make your environmental monitoring project a success, no matter where.
