As part of global efforts in the implementation of the Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS), the Korea Meteorological Administration (KMA) has been providing funding to support the improvement of climate services in Eastern Africa since 2013. This project aims at improving the capacity in provision and utilization of demand driven weather and climate services to support and enhance the resilience of vulnerable people and sectors to climate variability and change. The project will address the following gaps: i) Rapidly changing technology in data processing combined with limited capacity in processing, packaging and dissemination of weather and climate information and products; ii) Low awareness on TMA products leading to low uptake and use; iii) The need for improved agrometeorological services provision.
Enhancing the capacity in provision and utilization of weather and climate services in Tanzania
- Korea Meteorological Administration (KMA)
- Tanzania Meteorological Authority (TMA)
The United Republic of Tanzania is among the developing countries that are vulnerable to the impacts of climate variability and climate change. Over the last few decades it has been observed that the frequency and severity of extreme events are increasing and causing loss of livelihoods and socio-economic damages, particularly in the agriculture sector. Enhanced provision of climate services is critical for reducing the impacts of climate change and provide significant contribution to socio-economic development including the achievements of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the Tanzania National Development Vision (TDV 2025).
