- We introduce our programme of rainfall measurements and field observations by Indonesian farmers in their plots and explain the rationale and background of this approach. We then discuss the climate situation and some examples of climate adaptation in respectively Wareng/Gunungkidul, Yogyakarta, Central Java, for the La-Nina rainy season of 2008/2009 and in coastal Indramayu, west Java, for the El-Nino rainy season followed by a rather sudden La-Nina situation of 2009/2010.
- A plea for Climate Field Schools in China - Part II: Agrometeorological services in China — Last modified November 29, 2010 10:19
- I have lectured and travelled for advisory purposes in China almost annually since 1996, initially particularly in Nanjing, Beijing and Inner Mongolia. In several missions with Prof. Zheng Dawei to various provinces from 2004, we prepared a preliminary project submission to the China Meteorological Administration (CMA) at the end of 2007. In those visits, in 2008 together with either Prof. Wang Shili or Mr. Ma Yuping, we collected information on agrometeorological services being developed in the Provincial Meteorological Services/Bureaus concerned (Ningxia, Hebei, Inner Mongolia, Jiangxi, Henan).

- The Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Farmer Field School (FFS) approach, that was first tried in Indonesia and the Philippines just more than 20 years ago, is a success story. It has been mentioned in hundreds of scientific papers, many text books and newspaper articles and some documentaries.
