Climate uncertainty often influences farmer’s decisions. From time immemorial, farmers have used indigenous knowledge and traditional coping strategies to adapt to changes in weather and climatic conditions. However, by accessing climate information, farmers can make better use of new technologies and market opportunities thus reducing uncertainty. Combined with other climate-smart interventions such as rainwater harvesting, agroforestry, and livelihoods diversification, climate information services can help farmers cope with the negative impacts of climate variability and change, and take advantage of good conditions by confidently investing in their fields. In addition to being timely, this information should be in a format that is understandable and useful to the farmers and other users.
