Ethiopia Country Report
Impact assessment on climate information services for community-based adaptation to climate change
This country assessment into the impact of climate information services (CIS) in Ethiopia was carried out by C4EcoSolutions and is part of an overall regional impact assessment of CIS approaches developed by CARE’s Adaptation Learning Programme (ALP) across five countries is sub-saharan Africa.
This country report explores the extent of Participatory Scenario Planning (PSP) uptake and adoption in Ethiopia and the major challenges and innovations which took place within the PSP process. The assessment further reports on the value and impact of PSP’s in Ethiopia, particularly on how the process has strengthened adaptive capacities and community level climate resilience.
The findings within this Ethiopia country report highlight that contextualizing the PSP process and tailoring advisories to the local context is of critical importance. Existing governance structures will determine the extent to which such tailoring will be successful and sustainable.
