Focus-Africa brings together scientists, researchers, strategists and industry leaders to develop sustainable tailored climate services in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region for four sectors: agriculture and food security, water, energy and infrastructure. This will be demonstrated by piloting eight case studies in six countries involving a wide range of end-uses to illustrate how the application of new climate forecasts, projections, resources from Copernicus, GFCS and other relevant products can maximise socio-economic benefits in the Southern Africa region and potentially in the whole of Africa. We aim to become the main reference for all future climate service projects in the SADC region by advancing the science of climate services and producing effective climate service delivery. FOCUS-AFRICA will become a repository for knowledge and tools necessary in the development of practical and useful climate services to better tackle the risks of climate change.
