Cambodian Climate Hero Profile: Ms. Oak Iet

Ms. Oak Iet, 46, is a fulltime official with the Provincial Department of Water Resources and Meteorology in Koh Kong, southwest Cambodia. Each and every day for the past two years, Iet has been manually checking a simple rain gauge in her backyard. Her task is to log the data and report it the provincial authorities. In June 2018, with the family’s permission, an automatic weather station was installed by the Provincial Department in the family’s garden. Iet says the more detailed and accurate information gathered from the automatic weather station will be very helpful to farming families who will be able to check the conditions real- time and know what is coming.
