This policy brief synthesises consortium learning about the processes and partnerships required to develop climate services which can best support those people whose lives and livelihoods are directly impacted by climate risks. It outlines how a collaborative workshop between Zaman Lebidi and the climate science research project AMMA2050 provided a shared learning experience for both researchers and decision makers, considering how climate information can concretely support local decision-making processes in both urban and rural contexts.

This collaboration not only strengthened decision makers’ awareness about currently available and proposed future sources of climate information, it also heightened climate researchers’ awareness of the issues involved in providing climate information which can effectively support decision makers.
