Title Training Modules for Climate and Flood Forecast Applications in Agriculture
Abstract These training modules on climate and flood forecast applications in agriculture were developed for the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations to build the capacity of the Department of Agriculture Extension (DAE) of the Government of Bangladesh to interpret probabilistic climate and flood forecast information, translate these into location-specific impact outlooks, prepare locally relevant response options, and communicate these to vulnerable farming communities to reduce disaster risks in agriculture. These training modules, designed based on a training need assessment of DAE functionaries at the national, district, sub-district (upazilla), and block levels, provide the base material for the training workshops for DAE at each level. The workshop program for each level is designed around participants needs.
