Mobile phones in Mali with weather and climate information

16 November 2017. RIC4REC has innovated to benefit Malian producers regarding increasing mobile phone adoption to provide weather and climate information to farmers. Mobile phones are useful for disseminating weather and climate forecasts among producers and enable decision-making on the best dates for ploughing, sowing, applying fertilizer for agricultural activities, and laundry and drying for women. 

Regarding resilience to climate change, the use of mobile phone technology has improved the ability to anticipate and adapt to climate change based on the supply of information on future events in the short term (daily) and medium term (seasonal information), along with advice and recommendation on agricultural practices as per the specific needs of each producer.

Due to a technical problem which occurred during the Video recording the webinar is not available onlineThe case study in French: "Informations climatiques et conseils agricoles ay bout des doigts au Mali"  will soon be available in English as well, on the BRACED website:
