The inception workshop and the launch of phase II of the the GFCS Adaptation Programme in Africa took place on the 27 September in Lilongwe, Malawi.

Phase II will target 5 districts of Balaka, Chikhwawa, Lilongwe, Nsanje and Zomba and target four outcomes: health, agriculture, DRR and climate services.

As coordination had been highlighted as a challenge from phase one, stakeholders suggested some actions to enhance collaboration as follows:

(i) utilization of climate services institutional mapping analysis conducted during the Phase-I by academia,

(ii) ensuring that the national framework for climate services is in place to champion all coordination with policy support, 

(iii) establishment of the technical working group on climate services.
