Strengthening Meteo Rwanda’s Weather and Climate Services

Project Summary: 

The project will improve the range of weather and climate information available to inform decision making at all levels in Rwanda, and promote its understanding and application. It will achieve this by involving users in the development of new services, making investments in improved observations, forecasting and analysis, and introducing new communications channels. Aspects of delivery will be decentralised to develop closer links with users at district, sub-district and community levels.
