Climate information crucial for Africa’s growth and development, says Murombedzi

Africa’s growth and economic development depends heavily on climate sensitive sectors and its natural resources, raising the need for the continent to enhance investments in Climate Information Services and stimulate uptake of CIS and use in economic development programs.

This was said by Mr. James Murombedzi, Officer in Charge of the Economic Commission for Africa’s African Climate Policy Center (ACPC), in a presentation at a day-long workshop held Friday in Addis Ababa to mark Climate Information Services Day.

In the presentation titled; Enhancing the Uptake and Use of CIS in Development Policy, Planning and Practice: Strengthening Linkages Between Production and Uptake, Mr. Murombedzi said Africa should integrate climate considerations in development policy, planning and programs to achieve its development objectives.
