Our Work
(public results)

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.
