Her Story is the story of Ela Ganguli, a female farmer from Khulna, Bangladesh and her experience with weather and climate services. Mrs. Ganguli is part of a group of farmers involved in co-developing climate services in WaterApps project. Water and climate information helps Mrs. Ganguli and her fellow farmers to anticipate changes in the weather and plan their agriculture activities accordingly. For example, when the farmers know that there will be a rainstorm they can take the drying rice inside or plant their seedlings later in the week. Without this knowledge a harvest can be spoiled in an instance and freshly planted seedlings can be washed away.

The WaterApps project develops tailor-made water and weather information services with and for farmers in peri-urban areas in Urbanizing Deltas of the World to improve water and food security and contribute towards sustainable agriculture. The project is hosted by the Water Systems and Global Change group of Wageningen University & Research and includes PhD candidates in Bangladesh and Ghana.
