The ability of the world’s poorest farmers and pastoralists to adapt to a changing climate will affect the food security of millions across the world. In semi-arid Kenya, farmers and pastoralists face an uphill battle in making a living in a precarious environment from season-to-season and building long-term resilience to climate change, which threatens local economies and food systems.
Face-to-face participatory processes, merging weather station observations with satellite data, and bridging the supply and demand side of climate information services (CIS) are some of the promising options for improving CIS. While access to relevant climate services for farmers in Sub-Saharan Africa has increased substantially, uptake and integration of this information into decision-making remains highly variable.
