Capacity of key institutions

tte respondents indicated that they did not have sufficient capacity to conduct ag-rometeorological analysis that would meet the farmers' demands, ttis meant that the skills and equipment were not adequate. In many African meteorological services, funding has become a really big challenge for operational purposes or indeed for capacity building, tte remuneration of staff is also not very competitive and hence the occurrence of high staff turn-over, tte lack of capacity in institutions has been echoed by other researchers, tte International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI) Gap analysis report indicates that at present, there is the lack of effective institutional arrangements to facilitate the generation, analysis and systematic integration of relevant climate information with other pertinent information in a form that planning and operational agencies can use (IRI 2006).
