Climate Risk Information: Connecting the dots between Maasais, national and international actors

This video exercise is a bottom up participatory process that empowered a Maasai Community to craft and send their message out about their reality and need for climate information. It is an attempt to connect the dots between the ground and the higher levels, including government representatives and researchers.

This activity is part of the The Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS), an international partnership that aims to “fast-track” the establishment of climate services -such as seasonal outlooks – in developing countries which are mostexposed to climate change and extreme weather risks, and to ensurethat these services reach the most vulnerable communities on theground.

GFCS is funded by the Norwegian Government.
