The goal of the S2S Africa sub-project is to develop skillful forecasts on the S2S time scale over Africa and to encourage their uptake by national meteorological services and other stakeholder groups.


  1. Assess the performance of forecasts for 5-40 days ahead using the S2S forecast archive, with focus on daily weather characteristics including rain-day frequency, heavy rainfall events, dry spells and monsoon onset/cessation dates, with relevance to agriculture, water resources and public health
  2. Develop metrics for measuring the success of forecasts in ways that are useful to farmers and other stakeholder communities
  3. Work with the post-Africa Climate Conference 2013 framework to connect international with African climate science communities,  as well as with operational and user communities in a participatory two-way process
