Our case studies are the pillar of FOCUS-AFRICA’s development.
To illustrate how the application of new climate forecasts, projections can improve adaptation and resilience and maximise socio-economic benefits in the Southern Africa region and potentially in the whole of Africa, partners of the FOCUS-Africa project have identified eight case studies.
To ensure that the full value chain for the delivery of the climate services is effectively realised, each case study is conducted following a co-production approach, including the contribution of:
- a scientific research partner providing credible climate information
- a service provider partner effective at translating the climate information into usable and actionable applications or tools, and naturally,
- end-users making use of the climate services while providing regular feedback.
And to provide a range of examples where climate service delivery can be successfully implemented, the eight FOCUS-Africa case studies are targeting four key sectors in 5 countries in the SADC region: agriculture and food security, water, energy and infrastructure.
