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.
- 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
- Develop metrics for measuring the success of forecasts in ways that are useful to farmers and other stakeholder communities
- 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
