tte applicability of the climate forecasts depends so much to the extent to which the producers of the information had the users in mind while generating the information. In the current state, it is left to the general users to try and fit in climate forecasts into their activities. Hence the respondents highlighted the need for tailored forecasts that would make it easier for the users to make use of the information. ttese would imply that forecasts would aim at greater and more specific utility for particular users. Research reports that climate forecasts need to be integrated with other aspects of infrastructure and input supply; for instance, at present a prediction of drought is unlikely to be linked to increased availability of appropriate seeds (Blench 1999).
