A new cross-continental mapping tool will help tackle fragmentation across the African climate research community by facilitating collaboration among key stakeholders. Although close collaboration is essential in the production of high quality climate information, fragmentation in Africa continues to impede communication among key stakeholders. A new mapping tool developed by the Weather and Climate Information Services for Africa (WISER) project supports collaboration by providing comprehensive information on climate information projects that are under way. The mapping tool helps stakeholders to rapidly access key project information, including a project’s geographical location, the experts involved in its implementation, and its funding sources. The tool facilitates communication among stakeholders from different climate projects and enables them to identify synergies and form partnerships with a view to enhancing project outcomes.
