The Ministry of Water Resources and Meteorology (MoWRAM) is a source of important information for Cambodians. As an agricultural society, it is critical to have up-to-date information about upcoming weather and extreme events such as storms and floods. MoWRAM provides these forecasts both via their website and Facebook page. This analysis provides an overview of how these pages are used, including when during the day/year there are peaks in usage, as well as what sort of interaction the Cambodian public are having with MoWRAM via these resources.
Climate is not dictated to by man-made provincial and country borders – instead, there might be more accurate ways of zoning climate for forecasting and reporting.
