Clearly communicating climate science to policy makers is vital for effective decision making. As part of the BRAVE project, Dr Henny Osbahr was in Ghana last week and attended Africa Climate Week where speakers at a WASCAL event highlighted the need for climate information and ways to improve the transfer of this information into policy.
There were concerns that to date, there has been limited uptake of science into policy and this was considered ‘a political problem’, due to some policy makers undervaluing the science. This is often compounded by limited communication resulting in a lack of understanding of the importance and application of climate science. This panel aims to engage in productive dialogue around these issues.
