Agricultural Advisory Facilitator
SomReP aims to equip producers with the real-time climatic information to allow them to make risk-informed decision regarding their livelihood with the aim of enhancing food security and promoting economic growth. Towards this aim, SomReP will pilot an innovative approach already field-tested in Ethiopia and Kenya: the Agricultural Advisory. Just before the start of the agricultural season, a simple two-page document- highlighting project weather conditions for the next productive season and recommendations to best exploit these conditions will be develop, shared with farmer and pastoralist groups and promoted by key persons in government, prominent producers and others involved in the value-chain. Apart from providing farmers and pastoralists with information to help them prepare for the next growing season, the information provided is meant to catalyze the entire value chain, helping all value actors to prepare for the next season’s projected output. SomReP proposes to pilot this action for the upcoming Gu Rainy season due to start October 2018. As such, advisory information should be made available in September 2018 to allow actors to prepare for the projected seasonal performance.
Objective: SomReP aims to partner with Climate Center, To produce and provide real-time climatic information useful all actors in the Agriculture value chains in forms which are most relevant to the target groups (farmers, pastoralists, middle-value chain actors, etc (Crops/Livestock).
The advisory will be provided/completed before onset of Gu rains (end March)
