As a precursor to the Future Climate for Africa (FCFA) research activities, CDKN, on behalf of DFID commissioned a series of case study activities with the purposes of exploring the climate science needs of decision makers in Africa. The intention was for the learning gained through these pilot case studies to inform the design and implementation of the broader FCFA research activities over the coming years. The overarching aim of the case studies was to:
Provide users with the state of the art scientific information and build their capacity to use such information to support long term adaptation.
Contribute to the identification of climate information needs for real decision-making, with a view to informing the design of the FCFA.
