Providing timely and relevant seasonal forecasts to farmers in a region where misinformation could mean the difference between a good year and a catastrophic one is not a job to attempt alone.

Kaffrine, Senegal’s main agricultural region, is the setting for a new project from the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS). Together with the National Meteorological Agency (ANACIM, by its French acronym) and the extension department of the Senegalese Ministry of Agriculture, CCAFS is working to improve the decision making processes of small-scale farmers by facilitating their access to agroclimatic information and increasing their capacity for understanding and uptake of this information.

The alliance is embodied by two key Senegalese experts who serve as guides and beacons for the goal of successful inter-institutional collaboration: Ousmane Ndiaye and El Hadji Moussa Seck.
