Speaker: Dr. Till Below, GIZ

Topic: Towards climate resilient agri-food systems in Africa: Providing farmers with climate data for informed decision making

 

Abstract: Climate information and associated decision-making support are key ingredients for the transformation of agriculture and food systems. Food and agriculture initiatives are progressively incorporating climate considerations. However, they often lack capacities and user-friendly tools for climate risk assessments. Meanwhile, small-scale farmers across Africa still have very limited access to essential information on the climate in their location. The presentation introduces two concrete climate information tools supported by Germany and discusses their contribution for the climate-resilient transformation of agriculture and food systems.
