The Climate Research for Development in Africa strategic plan for the period 2019–2023 is aimed at maximizing the opportunities presented by climate variability and change and tackling the challenges posed to the socioeconomic development efforts of Africa. It specifically sets out directions and priorities to catalyze pan-African multidisciplinary climate research that is responsive to specific users and the development planning needs at the local, national and regional levels. In addition, it is intended to create a platform through an interactive and collaborative approach uniting climate science, services and policy making under a coordinated network of expertise and institutions. The operation of the working group is monitored by the Climate Research for Development in Africa secretariat and is accountable to the Scientific Advisory Committee and the secretariat for the implementation of the research. Overall, carrying out the strategic plan requires input from diverse experts in climate science research, applications and policy in its effort to guide climate research for the period 2019–2023 and to bring the greatest benefit to the end user communities.
