The first FOCUS-Africa External Stakeholder Workshop is an online event, on 9 December 2020 (09:00 - 12:30 CET/10:00 - 13:30 SAST).
The FOCUS-Africa project incorporates eight case studies within four sectors - agriculture and food security, water, energy and infrastructure - across the geographical region of the Southern African Development Community (SADC). The main objective of the project is to develop sustainable, tailored climate services. Six Stakeholder Workshops, of which this is the first, are organised to support the project in showcasing and sharing its results, and importantly to seek input and possible collaborations from stakeholders.
The first Workshop focuses on South Africa with presentations from a selection of stakeholders interested in climate services for the country. Specifically, the Workshop will provide an opportunity:
* to assess the user's perspective of climate related risks;
* to map the existing climate risk mitigation and adaptation measures and responses;
* to raise an awareness of climate services tools and knowledge; and
* to identify lessons learned from 2020 and COVID-19.
Microsoft Teams will be used to deliver the Workshop and the connection details will be shared with you on the confirmation page.
