The workshop is sponsored jointly by the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS), the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Climate Services Partnership (CSP).
Objectives of the workshop are:
• To capture and share lessons and evidence about how climate information and advisory services can be used to improve the lives of smallholder farmers, building on examples of good practice in Africa and South Asia.
• To foster collaboration between and within sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia on climate information and advisory services for smallholder farmers.
• To identify critical gaps in the design, delivery and effective use of climate-related information for risk management among smallholder farmers in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia; and to identify and foster institutional linkages that could address those gaps.
• To initiate a collective process toward regional roadmaps for strengthening and scaling-up climate information and advisory services for agriculture and food security in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.
