This report puts participatory scenario planning (PSP - a multi-stakeholder platform for making seasonal climate forecasts useful) into the broader context of climate communication, with a focus on Africa.
It is aimed at new users and intermediaries interested in integrating climate information into adaptation, resilience, disaster risk reduction (DRR), early warning, agriculture and other sector-based development programmes and related work. It explains why and how climate information is a valuable resource for informing responses to climate variability and change. Based on lessons from the Adaptation Learning Programme (ALP) and national meteorological services in Ghana, Kenya and Niger, the report demonstrates how climate information can inform decision-making, planning and policy development and ensure results are climate resilient.
