Title: Development of a Stakeholder Engagement Framework for NASA's SERVIR Program
Summary: IRI's health and agricultural index groups are working with NASA's SERVIR program to provide it with user input for the potential design of a selected set of products, guidance for SERVIR Regional Hubs on product selection and design, and recommendations to the program overall on how to better work with communities of practice to guide the development of user-centered climate-related information products. IRI is also building capacity and raise awareness among users in target sites about climate information, uncertainty, and SERVIR by conducting several workshops in East Africa. In this presentation, we will summarize the progress we have made so far in formalizing a stakeholder engagement process for NASA's SERVIR program to use in the future.
