Climate Information Services: training a critical mass of key influencers

The “Training of Trainers” programme and a supporting online toolkit have been rolled out across Africa to raise awareness of the importance of climate information among key influential groups.

  • The programme is intended to train key influencing groups on how climate variables can be analysed, packaged and applied to inform decisions in policy, planning and practice;
  • Through a ripple-effect learning framework, trainers have trained peers from Parliament, civil society organizations and media organizations and young people at national and regional levels;
  • Workshops have been rolled out nationwide – the programme is intended to train 2,000 delegate trainees by the end of 2019.
