Unfortunately signiﬁcant gaps of knowledge exist on the most appropriate interventions to use. Many actors (government, agencies and investors) are asking what options exists and which should be implemented to improve the livelihoods of the rural poor. The bottom-line costs and/or beneﬁts of these interventions need to be known if they are to be planned and implemented and investments sources to support their development. Therefore, there is need to continue grappling with ideas, as well as ways and means which can contribute towards improved incomes and livelihoods in semi-arid regions of Africa through reduced vulnerability to climate variability and promotion of climate resilience in development investments, enhancing biodiversity, increasing yields and lowering greenhouse gas emissions.
Kwena et al. Fig. 3 Climate change databases databases established by Government Departments and National Agricultural Research Institutions (NARIs). Finally, about 7 % of the respondents relied solely on the FAO-based databases. The preference by respondents for databases managed by CGIAR centres may be attributed to the richness and accessibility of these databases due to very active participation of these centres in climate change research. There is need to enrich NARIs databases and those of Government Departments and make them more accessible to enhance sharing and application of climate change information by policy makers and other stakeholders (Fig.
Kuyiah, Reuben J. Ruttoh and Anthony M. Kibue Abstract The aim of this study is to assess the extent to which scientiﬁc information has been used to inform climate change adaptation policies, plans and strategies in Kenya; and also to assess the effectiveness of existing platforms for sharing climate change information in the country. Two major policy documents guiding climate change adaptation planning in Kenya, the National Climate Change Response Strategy (NCCRS) and the National Climate Change Action Plan (NCCAP), were analysed for use of scientiﬁc information in their formulation through literature review; and interviewing policy makers using an open-ended questionnaire to determine the extent to which they accessed and applied scientiﬁc-based evidence of climate change impacts in development planning.
