Enhancing Value Chain Actors Accessibility to Climate Information in Nyeri County
The initiative seeks to build the capacity and create awareness to value chain actors on climate change causes, the risks and possible mitigation measures. It is expected that the implementation of the concept will enhance access to weather and climate smart adaptation advisory services. Weather/climate smart advisories will be generated and disseminated to agricultural value chain actors through Participatory Scenario Planning by coming up with climate information that is relevant to people’s specific, practical ,user-friendly and locally relevant. The information will be disseminated to value chain actors through multiple channels like Barazas/meetings, churches, schools, mobile phones, radio, and audio-visual media. In addition, value chain actors, especially the youth and women will be trained on how to access relevant climate information through various weather/climate information platforms using smart phones. To further improve on the accuracy of weather information collected, various weather station and rain gauges will be installed at strategic points in the county.
