Climate Services for Increased Resilience in the Sahel

Sahel (Burkina Faso ; Senegal ; Niger)

Titre : Climate Services for Increased Resilience in the Sahel

Pays/Région : Sahel : Burkina Faso ; Senegal ; Niger

Date : June 2016 - August 2018

The overall aim of the project is to enable society to better manage the risks and opportunities arising from climate change and natural variability, especially those that are most vulnerable to climate-related hazards. This is to be achieved by developing and incorporating science-based climate information and prediction into planning, policy and practice. The provision of more and better climate services will allow disaster risk managers to prepare more effectively for droughts and heavy precipitation ; empower farmers to fine tune their planting and marketing strategies based on seasonal climate forecasts ; assist public health services to target vaccine and other prevention campaigns to limit climate-related disease outbreaks such as malaria and meningitis ; and help improve the management of water resources.
The project comprises these three major components : * Component 1 - regional : Increased resilience through the enhanced development, delivery and use of tailored climate information products at regional level in climate-sensitive sectors * Component 2 - national : Enhanced decision-making processes at the national level through integration of climate information into decision-making in climate sensitive sectors * Component 3 - training : Knowledge sharing and capacity development at regional level : Enhanced cooperation in the region for the development and use of climate products and services
