KeywordsClimate Variability - Zimbabwe
AbstractOne of the major challenges facing Southern Africa, including Zimbabwe is climate variability. The country is predicted to become drier and drier and mean average temperatures are on the increase. The impacts of climate variability affect vulnerable groups, including women and children, more than others in a community. It is within this context that a project on strengthening weather and climate information was initiated in three semi-arid districts of Zimbabwe namely Gutu, Chirumanzu and Zvishavane. This case study seeks to profile channels of communication and extension methods useful for disseminating gender sensitive climate information that takes into cognisance the gendered roles and responsibilities at household and community levels.
