Research in Progress: Holistic Climate Service Prototypes for Farmers in Tambuu, Tanzania

Abstract : Urgent efforts are needed to address climate change and changing climate variability. Solutions are needed at economic, political, scientific, educational, as well as technological domains. Our previous research in Tambuu, Tanzania, shows that the acute information needs of the community are credible and trustworthy weather information, knowledge in best uses of weather information, and education about best farming practices. Delivering the information for end users in Tambuu is a challenge in itself. Based on these results and following the principles of System Action Design Research, we developed prototypes for future climate services together with local farmers in Tambuu community. These prototypes and our future plans are presented in this research-in-progress paper.
