Présentation
Reliable and detailed regional climate information, including current and future assessments of climate variability and change, is essential in the design of effective strategies for adaptation to climate change. Such information critically depends on the availability of good quality climate observations with sufficient spatial coverage over a long period of time, on the adequacy of models to depict current and future regional climate, and on a thorough understanding and appreciation of the uncertainties and constraints associated with the use of both data and regional and global models. To assist the developing and least developed countries of the Greater Horn of Africa (GHA) region to undertake and appropriately use climate projections in adaptation planning, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and the World Bank are collaborating to develop and implement a programme of three linked workshops. This workshop programme will demonstrate the key elements of an effective climate risk management strategy for the region. The programme is being implemented by the WMO­sponsored Global Climate Observing System (GCOS) and World Climate Research Programme (WCRP), by the WMO World Climate Applications and Services Programme (WCASP) and World Climate Data and Monitoring Programme (WCDMP), and by the Nairobi­based IGAD (Inter­Governmental Authority on Development) Climate Prediction and Applications Center (ICPAC). The overall objectives of the workshop programme are to help ensure that attention is given by countries in the GHA region to observation and data needs, to demonstrate the use and value of regional models, to provide advice on model limitations, and to improve capabilities across the GHA for using data records and model projections for adaptation planning. The project will demonstrate the application of climate information in particular for the agriculture/food security and water resources sectors.
