Titre : Bridging Climate Information Gaps to Strengthen Capacities for Climate Informed Decision-making

Région/Pays : Afrique (Cameroon, Kenya, Malawi, Nigeria, and Tunisia)

Date : 2017-2019

Descriptif
The project responds to the call to strengthen the capacities in Africa countries to collect, synthesize and use climate information and services to inform decision-making on adaptation and development planning. It is being implemented by the African Technology Policy Studies Network (ATPS) in partnership with the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) Africa Centre, IGAD Climate Prediction and Applications Centre (ICPAC), Observatoire du Sahara et du Sahel (OSS), AGRHYMET Regional Centre (ARC), and the Regional Centre for Mapping Resource for Development (RCMRD). The project focuses on five selected countries (Cameroon, Kenya, Malawi, Nigeria, and Tunisia), which are a representative of the five major geographical regions in Africa

Objectifs
The project aims to strengthen the capacities of African countries to collect, understand and deploy appropriate climate information and best practices to support decision-making and support development planning, reduce the vulnerability of the selected countries and foster a food-sure Africa. Specifically, the project will : * Identify and analyse climate information needs, provide support for climate information production, synthesis, and use ; * Build the capacities and knowledge of stakeholders (government agencies, research institutions, extension agents and contact famers) to collect and utilize high quality, demand-driven climate information for adaptation planning and decision-making ; and * Facilitate the mainstreaming of climate change issues in regional policy dialogue aimed at raising awareness on climate change issues to strengthen understanding, use and mastery of climate information.
