This project offers a novel approach to improving the generation and use of weather and climate information by enhancing the supply of user-relevant weather and climate information through co-production and capacity development.
It will create a learning and exchange environment within WISER and beyond to apply co-production approaches, better understand the drivers of user uptake of weather and climate information as well as case studies on measuring the socio economic benefit of using climate services. The project will also support the WISER programme on monitoring, evaluation and learning (MEL) and articulating transformational change and building capacity in African researchers and practitioners to apply the approaches used in the project.
The project is being led by SouthSouthNorth (SSN) who are working with project partners Climate Systems Analysis Group (CSAG), ICF, the Overseas Development Institute (ODI) and the International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI).
