Downscaling of Climate information and Sector Advisories at Cluster Levels

Authors: IGAD
Date: 2020
Type: Report


In the IGAD region, more than 2/3 of the region is considered as ASAL and suffers periodical climate related disasters. These regions share common cross-border challenges ranging from drought and food insecurity, internal and cross-border violence, cattle rustling, prevalence of weapons and unwarranted loss of human livelihoods leading to deplorable human living conditions and contested political boundary demarcations. This is majorly due to lack of access to accurate and timely weather and climate information for early warning and disaster risk reduction This report aims to downscale the October-December 2020 climate outlook and develop sectorial advisories for SECCCI clusters.
