Case studies

We aim to become the main reference for all future climate service projects in the SADC region by advancing the science of climate services and producing effective climate service delivery.

FOCUS-AFRICA will become a repository for knowledge and tools necessary in the development of practical and useful climate services to better tackle the risks of climate change.

Through the work of our project partners and strategic partnerships between European and SADC organisations, FOCUS-Africa build upon past and ongoing related projects and advance the way climate services are developed and used throughout the supply chain of end-users.

Our mission is to create dedicated climate services for the SADC region. We have identified eight case studies in the energy, food security, water and infrastructure sectors of the SADC region – to provide a range of examples where climate service delivery can be successfully implemented.

The case studies, formulated based on end-user requirements, aim to improve adaptation and resilience. The resulting tailored climate services cover the full value-chain, whereby each case study is contributed by a research partner, a service provider partner and an end-user.

This approach will ensure that we have tangible and applicable climate services.

The eight FOCUS-Africa case studies will focus on 6 countries in the SADC region.
