Latest Employment Opportunity at DAI
Agriculture in Ghana is primarily rainfed, making it particularly vulnerable to climate change and fluctuation. Delays in the start and early cessation of seasonal rainfall, for example, are increasing crop failure, while high-intensity rains and irregular rainfall distribution within the season have increased the occurrence of droughts and floods, which destroy crops and damage infrastructure.
Climate Information Services (CIS) 2 are required to assist farmers in making climate-smart decisions in order to mitigate these impacts. Climate data on factors such as temperature, rainfall, wind, soil moisture, and extreme weather indicators are collected, analyzed, packaged, and distributed as part of the CIS supply. 3. CIS, for example, allows farmers to make informed decisions about crop selection, planting timing, the need for extra irrigation, disease/pest management, and so on.
The overall goal of this consulting is to create adequate legislation that allows the GMet to regulate CIS provision in Ghana by establishing and enforcing standards in the CIS sector. Specific goals include:
- Based on existing Acts, other national legal instruments, and international (WMO) agreements/conventions, create a Legislative Instrument (LI) for CIS regulation.
- Incorporate sector stakeholders’ ideas, comments, and suggestions into the draft LI.

- Participate in meetings with the Parliamentary Select Committees on Communication and Environment, Science and Technology, and Science and Technology.
- Make progress presentations to GMet, Policy LINK, AICCRA, and TAHMO representatives as needed.
