The overarching outcome of the ASPIRE Adaptive Social Protection (ASP) training services will be to enable Social Protection (SP) stakeholders in the target countries to make better use of climate & livelihoods information to support SP decision making that builds livelihoods resilient to drought, flood and other climate shocks. Implementation of the training will have general applicability across the Sahel & ECOWAS SP communities and help ensure sustainability of the wider project activities.
The key learning outcomes of this training will be:
- Enhanced understanding by Met services of the climate information needs of SP stakeholders : what SP is, what information SP stakeholders need and why and how they can use this information.
- Awareness of the nature of monitoring and forecasting and the role and activities of NMS among SP stakeholders.
- Improved understanding of the possibilities, uncertainties and practical relevance of climate information.
- Knowledge of how SP can make best use of climate information with examples taken from the specific SP programmes implemented at national level and potential triggers for interventions
