Who We Are

About ICE

The Interactive Collaborative Environment, (ICE), is an online platform designed with the aim of promoting wide dissemination and enabling stakeholders to interact and share information and knowledge amongst each other. It is a web repository containing varied information on climate change for the benefit of its valued users. The ICE platform is envisaged to offer opportunities for all stakeholders in the climate sectors to participate in information sharing aimed at strengthening the capacities of African countries to understand, develop and deploy appropriate scientific knowledge on climate information access, use and management on the continent.

The ICE platform comprises of different modules including social media, a wiki (knowledge repository), a virtual marketing place, a forum, and an enhanced search functionality on adaptation plans, technologies, policies and other different projects. The social media platform serves to bring together people for purposes of exchanging ideas and their experiences on climate change, enable them to create networks and engage stakeholders in discussions surrounding the issue. This, together with the Forum module and the virtual market place and streams from other mainstream media connects stakeholders to selected experts on climate change from whom they share ideas on the subject for free. The virtual markets also aggregates information on available donor-funded projects to the stakeholders, as well provide a chance for stakeholders to list their proposals for prospective funders to explore.

Generally, the entire ICE website serves as a knowledge repository that promotes file sharing on projects, programmes, adaptation plans and policies on climate change. For this reason, the ICE platform becomes a one-stop shop for persons seeking information on climate change. The content on the platform is uploaded freely by users of the website and verified by selected experts before being made publicly available to site users. This is for purposes of ensuring the accuracy and correctness of the information and can be used for decision-making.

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

Project Description/ Background

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.
