Mapping of extremesandvulnerabilities (GIS)

Extrapolationofclimatic to prioritary socio economicsectors

Land use planning Act

Land use allocation strategy

Physical infrastructure for data access

Early warning system




  • Biggest challenge: lack of capacities => Efforts focused on capacity development

  • Establishment of a Climate Change Information Centre (CICC) at the National University which serves as a portal to host and manage robust information => data is anchored in a permanent institutional context with an open access to all stakeholders

  • Crossing of raw climate data and socio economic data

  • Capitalization on regional expertise and expertise of international experts

What was achieved

  • Physical infrastructure for access to raw data:

  • HPC server set up

  • Deployment of a grid consisting of 12(6 acquired /6 ordered) meteorological, climatic and hydrological automated stations, connected to a GPRS/GSM network, to transfer collected data

  • Setting up of the Internet system (wireless & white space) for basic integrated management of climate data on the server

  • Analytical data

  • Sectorial vulnerability assessments

  • Mapping of risks and extremes

  • Institutional infrastructure

  • Setting up a technical committee composed of members of the University and Meteorological services directorate

  • Establishment of the COCC at the university

  • Human infrastructure

  • Identification and training of 5 engineer and technicians at Trieste based ICTP (Italy) and in Congo on the usage of systems

  • Training on the economics of adaptation

Next steps

=>Installation of 12 stations on the sites identified by the national meteorological services (ANAC)

  • Installation of the Wireless and ‘White Spaces’ internet systems

  • Make the CC Information Centre operational

  • Through the acquisition of the additional systems required to set up the early warning system, it is important to:

  • follo- up on risks and follow on risk related information and

  • ii) a project focusing on the integration of the cost benefit analysis in public expenditure frameworks


  • Capacity development an absolute pre-requisite to develop any integrated architecture aimed at informing policy

  • Institutional set-up/anchoring:

  • There is a greater capacity at the university level, limiting any institutional & political risk=> need to officialise the joint committee (university/Met services)

  • Activities to be pursued by the national Environment protection agency

  • CIC institutional arrangement should have been spelt out from the start
