Story of Change: Open source tools and skills for climate information flows

Identifying barriers to sharing and making use of climate information is an important aspect of REACH programme research. In Ethiopia’s Awash Basin, REACH partners have worked together to build tools and skills to facilitate management, curation, validation, visualization and comparison of climate data from weather and streamflow gauging stations in the region. This long term capacity building interaction has involved weekly collaborative coding sessions with forecasters (EMI), practitioners (MOWE) and graduate students (WLRC). Outputs from these sessions include code to produce clear and readable local forecasts and support water allocation planning.
