Cambodian Climate Profile: Mr. Tong Seng

As a flood forecaster, Mr. Tong Seng plays an integral role in early warning systems. Seeing the general population of Cambodia begin to understand the importance of meteorology and hydrology is a highlight of his career. “The information we provide is for everyone, even the people in the city...More people have been reached now – we distribute information on Facebook, a lot more people have phones so now they can receive information that way too. This makes me very happy... People can use the information to manage their property and their lives, so that they are protected from disasters. It is preventative approach, because disasters always happen.”
