In this context, ‘climate information’ can include any information on average and extreme conditions of temperature, rainfall, wind, soil moisture and humidity, whether obtained from local or scientific sources. For the purposes of this prize, it includes short- term weather-related information as well as information covering periods of months, seasons and years.
The Kenya Meteorological Department provides scientific meteorological and climatological services through their website. There are also other sources of science-based climate information on the internet. People and communities across Kenya also hold a wide range of climate information, e.g. in the form of seasonal rainfall indicators.
The CIP aims to attract eligible innovators with new ideas using climate information to develop innovative solutions that will help the vulnerable adapt to climate variability and change.
