Climate information & early warnings to save lives and build livelihoods in Uganda


With the goal of improving the lives and livelihoods of its citizens, the government of Uganda is embarking on an ambitious mission to modernise its weather, water and climate monitoring systems. These updated systems will save lives, build better livelihoods for smallholder farmers, and foster climate-smart decisions which will propel the nation’s economy forward.

Currently, 80% of Uganda’s population is dependent on rain-fed agriculture, and as the climate changes and weather patterns become harder to predict, the livelihoods of many Ugandan farmers are being put at risk. The project in question is building systems to share improved forecasts and other climate information products that the Government of Uganda can use in economic development and risk-reduction efforts.

More information on the project may be found on the related links.
