Full-value chain Optimised Climate User-centric Services for Southern Africa: FOCUS-Africa

Project description

Climate science to support and optimise climate-sensitive industries

Southern Africa experiences substantial inter-annual climate variability and is emerging as a potential hotspot of climate change. The EU-funded FOCUS-Africa project will develop sustainable tailored climate services to support improved climate-related outcomes in key climate-sensitive sectors: agriculture and food security, water, energy and infrastructure. Through the project, eight case studies in six countries will assess and test how climate services can be operationalised through the hydro-meteorological systems and institutional infrastructure of the World Meteorological Organisation. The aim will be to illustrate how the use of climate science, forecasts and projections can maximise socio-economic benefits to specific national private and public sectors in the region. The full value chain of climate services will be demonstrated and the lessons learned will be upscaled to other countries in Africa as well as Europe.
