Company summary

The world we know today is facing severely degrading ecosystems. Earth’s vegetated cover suffers from declining trends in productivity, and species are becoming extinct at an unprecedented rate. With the current climate change crisis trajectory, the livelihoods of millions of people are seriously threatened.

At The Weather Makers we use our expertise, practical knowledge and dedication to positively and effectively influence the weather in order to stabilize the climate and achieve natural regeneration.

Ecology and engineering are used to identify and leverage cross-scale, cross-disciplinary synergies to generate positive, transformative change at local-to-global scales, with the ultimate goal to stabilize the climate system.

We developed the Weather Making Approach, which is an agile ecosystem planning, engineering and management strategy that can be implemented on multiple scales and with different stakeholder groups. It provides understanding how to regenerate ecosystems as a basis for restoring water cycles. The Weather Making approach (re)values the role of the biosphere in weather and climate and develops long-term nature-based strategies for terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems and translates them into targets and reward systems.

« I came to know The Weather Makers as a group of enthusiastic, inspiring and committed people with a passion for their work. During our project about growing plants in the desert, came to visit several times to see the growth of the plants with their own eyes; something which doesn’t happen often. «
