CLIMATE INFORMATION & NEEDS ASSESSMENT REPORT

The impact of climate change in African countries has been widely acknowledged. Africa has made considerable efforts over the past decade in the development of regional and national strategies and institutions aimed at supporting African countries to transition towards climate resilient and less carbon-intensive economies. At the regional level, several programmes and initiatives have been to tackle the effect and impact of climate change through the provision of robust climate information and services that support decisions and strategies for climate resilient economies. One such programme is the Climate for Development in Africa (ClimDev), a joint initiative of the African Development Bank (AfDB), African Union and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA). Under this initiative, the ClimDev Africa Special Fund (CDSF) was established to strengthen institutional capacities of national and sub-regional bodies to formulate and implement effective climate-sensitive policies.

These reports provide an assessment of the climate information, needs and services in Cameroon, Kenya, Malawi, Nigeria and Tunisia. This is part of the activities in component one of the project that runs for 2 years till the end of 2019. These assessments were mainly conducted through desk studies where various published and unpublished documents and information were analysed. Key informant interviews were conducted to triangulate and validate the results of the desk studies. Among those interviewed were government officials drawn from the key ministries, those from the meteorological, transport, Tourism, agricultural departments among others. ATPS conducted studies for Cameroon, ICPAC for Kenya, RCMRD for Malawi, ARC for Nigeria and OSS for Tunisia. SEI was not part of this component. The reports were individually reviewed and this consolidated report prepared capturing the key issues identified in the five countries.
