InfoClim : Platform for Helping Vulnerable Communities Adapt to Climate Change

Climate change poses a real challenge to communities of the Sahel, that of surviving in a fragile environment undergoing rapid mutation. To meet this challenge, local and national actors must be aware of the phenomenon, monitor changes on the ground, and have access to strategies for adaptation and preparedness.

The project InfoClim will establish a platform to facilitate the integration of scientific information, local adaptation strategies and policies for reducing vulnerability in Sénégal. Working in several villages belonging to four communities in the region of Thiès, the project will put in place an observatory of climate change, sensitize local actors, and identify and implement adaptation strategies to improve the living conditions of vulnerable populations, or at least slow down their degradation. If the experience proves successful, it will be repeated elsewhere.
