southern MalawiDr Katharine Vincent is in Malawi this week as the UMFULA team continues its research visit in southern Africa. The "Uncertainty Reduction in Models for Understanding Development Applications" (UMFULA) project is part of the Future Climate for Africa programme, and concerned with climate services in Africa. Project team members from the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment, the University of Leeds and Lilongwe University of Agriculture and Natural Resources are meeting with partners in the three southern districts of Thyolo, Nsanje and Chikwawa, and both private sector and government staff in the water and agriculture sectors. The purpose is to initiate the co-production process for developing and integrating climate services into planning, and to identify case study planning decisions on which to work during the project.
