Bridging Climate Information Gaps to Strengthen Capacities for Climate Informed 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.
