IGAD, FAO and WMO join forces to stave off impacts of climate change on agriculture
5 September 2018, Kigali –The
The 29th Meeting of the Adaptation Fund Board, which was held in Bonn, Germany on 16-17 March 2017, has endorsed a USD 6.8 million proposal submitted by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) entitled “Agricultural Climate Resilience Enhancement Initiative (ACREI).” Targeted countries include Ethiopia, Kenya and Uganda.
This makes WMO the first Multilateral Implementing Entity to have a regional proposal approved by the Adaptation Fund Board under the Pilot Programme for regional projects and programmes.
The Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) Climate Prediction and Applications Centre (ICPAC) says that drought conditions throughout the Greater Horn of Africa are likely to continue in many areas between February and the beginning of April. ICPAC's latest Climate Outlook indicates that much of Somalia, Kenya, eastern and southern Ethiopia, southern Sudan, northern Uganda and north-eastern areas of the United Republic of Tanzania will experience below-normal to near-normal rainfall, while northern parts of the Greater Horn of Africa are likely to remain very dry.
