Leveraging climate information for improved productivity

You're invited to join AICCRA and partners for a timely webinar on Ghana's 2024 Seasonal Forecast for the Southern Sector. Speakers will share useful information about the climate that farmers can expect in the upcoming farming season and how they can respond to the various scenarios. 

Watch the event


Climate information services including daily, weekly, seasonal forecasts, and associated advisories help farmers make the right decisions for their farms and influence their adoption of climate-smart agriculture technologies and practices. 

However, its access and use by farmers are restricted by factors, such as gender and limited access to communication channels. Over the last three years, Accelerating the Impact of CGIAR Research for Africa (AICCRA) project through the Ghana Meteorological Agency has been scaling climate information services (CIS) alongside climate-smart agriculture (CSA) technologies and practices to thousands of smallholder farmers in Ghana. 

But there is still a lot to be done to reach more farmers effectively. Achieving this requires strengthening existing partnerships and establishing new ones.  

Ahead of World Meteorological Day, AICCRA Ghana and Enyonam Manye, known as 'The Ghanaian Farmer', will be hosting a webinar on Thursday 21st March 2024 to present the 2024 Seasonal Forecast for Ghana’s Southern Sector to farmers, extension officers, scientists, and media organisations to support the dissemination of advisories to reach farmers on time for effective planning ahead of the upcoming farming season.  

Expected Outcomes

The event is expected to: 

•   Facilitate the timely dissemination of the seasonal forecasts to farmers through a wide network of partnerships
•   Strengthen the capacity of lead farmers, extension agents, and media organisations to communicate seasonal forecasts to farmers effectively
