A Regional Observatory for Producers’ Climate Change Adaptation in Thies, Senegal
In the region of Thies, climate change and variability have a strong impact on the vulnerability of rural households. Meteorological and agricultural advisory information is produced by different stakeholders, but for individuals and households, access to these sources of information is very limited. This case study discusses the experiences of rural producers in Thies who worked with Senegal’s Ecological Monitoring Centre to create a community-based climate information platform to help vulnerable populations adapt to climate change and variability.
This brief resulted from two projects from the Climate Change Adaptation in Africa program: the research project InfloClim: Platform for helping vulnerable communities adapt to climate change and the mentoring projectPromoting Participatory Action Research through Structured Learning on Climate Change Adaptation in Africa.
The Adaptation Insights series is a joint publication of the International Development Research Centre and the Centre for International Forestry Research (CIFOR), supported by the Climate Change Adaptation in Africa program.
