CICERO/UD: Climate Services for Adaptation in Africa
This project pilots the concept of climate services in two countries in Africa: Malawi and Tanzania. Climate services in the context of climate change extend beyond mere weather forecasts to incorporate advice to farmers about when and what to plant; to health workers about health hazards such as malaria prevalence stemming from e.g. rising temperature and moisture; and to disaster prevention and management personnel in response to extreme weather events. The ambition is to establish a system of climate services, originating from forecasts produced by meteorological agencies and translated into advisories to be communicated to a range of users.
Altogether seven international partners are involved under the auspices of the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) plus several local partners in the two countries concerned.
CMI collaborates with Lilongwe University of Agriculture and Natural Resources (LUANAR) in Malawi, and with the Center for International Climate and Environmental Research – Oslo (CICERO). The latter is responsible for the Tanzanian part of the project.
