Workshop Report: Improving Resilience to Climate Impacts in Ethiopia Through Improved Availability, Access and Use of Climate Information: Dialogue With Users

Vaughan, C.; Cousin, R.; Dinku, T.; Lemma, M.

Ethiopia's National Meteorological Agency (NMA) is transforming its climate information services in a way that is unprecedented in Africa, and in many parts of the world. NMA's new innovative products include a 30-year time series of ten-daily rainfall and temperature data for every 10 km grid across Ethiopia, created by combining station measurements and satellite proxies; and an online mapping service providing user-friendly tools for visualization, querying, and accessing informatioff. The workshop presented these tools to a range of users and potential users in order . to:
• provide an overview of the themes of climate risk management;
• make participants aware of the information and products that already exist
• train them in the use of the tool
• solicit feedback regarding improvements and/or other climate information products that could assist in risk management practices within the country
Workshops participants represented agriculture, water, food security, and disaster risk management, and provided feedback regarding how the tool could be improved.
