This was said by the Director General of Tanzania Meteorological Agency Dr Agnes Kijazi while addressing Zonal Managers from various parts of the country during a training workshop on stakeholders’ engagement held in Arusha. “After this training I expect each one to be determined on serving the community with better and quality services and products from our Agency, I would like to see Zonal managers looking for stakeholders around your areas and visit them instead of waiting for them to visit your offices. Weather and climate services have to become part and parcel of the society daily commodity for social and economic development of our country “said Dr. Kijazi. She added that through interaction with stakeholders is easy to get feedback on the services provided. The feedbacks received from few stakeholders we have reached indicate an improvement on our services; however, there are few challenges that we need to work on so as to ensure continuous improvement of our services. We need to work hard to ensure the Agency contribute positively to the intention of our Government of transforming our country into middle-income economy through Industrialization. Weather and Climate services are an important integral part in the construction and operation of Industries. We therefore have obligations of providing quality services to contribute towards achievement of this national goal. She said Dr. Kijazi.

Based on that, TMA and UK-Met Office under the sponsorship of DFiD has organized a two weeks training workshop to enhance experts on how to engage with stakeholders including local media, how to communicate key messages and how to ensure continual improvement through day to day feedback from stakeholder, this will increase TMA service quality, dissemination range and stakeholder database. Said Ms. Sandra.

MAADHIMISHO YA SIKU YA HALI YA HEWA DUNIANI

TAREHE 23 MACHI, 2017

Kila mwaka ifikapo tarehe 23 Machi nchi wanachama 190 wa Shirika la Hali ya Hewa Duniani hujiunga kuadhimisha kuzaliwa kwa Shirika hilo lililoanzishwa tarehe 23 Machi, 1950 kulingana na kauli mbiu teule. Kauli mbiu ya mwaka huu ni ’Tuyaelewe mawingu na umuhimu wake’- ”(Understanding clouds)”.
Katika kuadhimisha Siku ya Hali ya Hewa Duniani (WMD), Shirika la Hali ya Hewa Duniani  limetambua umuhimu wa kuongeza uelewa wa mawingu ili kujua zaidi mchango wake katika mzunguko wa maji kati ya nchi kavu, baharini na angan,i na uhusiano wake na hali ya hewa ya muda mfupi na mrefu. Kama inavyojulikana kuwa mawingu yana umuhimu mkubwa sana katika mifumo ya hali ya hewa ya dunia na hivyo elimu juu ya tabia ya mawingu itasaidia katika kutabiri hali ya hewa na kutambua mabadiliko ya tabia nchi kwa wakati ujao. Wahenga huwa wanasema, Dalili ya Mvua ni Mawingu.
 
Kama ilivyo kwa wanachama wengine, Tanzania inaungana nao kuadhimisha siku hii inayofikia kilele leo tarehe 23 Machi, 2017 kwa kuwakaribisha wananchi wote kutembelea vituo vya hali ya hewa nchini ili kuona shughuli zitolewazo na Mamlaka na kujifunza. Aidha, Mamlaka itambelea na kutoa elimu kwa vijana wa baadhi ya shule na vyuo mbali mbali nchini kupitia ofisi zake zilizopo nchi nzima. Kutoa makala  za siku hiyo kwenye magazeti, vipindi kwenye radio, televisheni na mitandao ya kijamii kuhusu elimu juu ya mawingu na sayansi hali ya hewa kwa ujumla, hii itasaidia kuongeza wigo wa elimu kwa umma hususani mashuleni.

Tunawatakia maadhimisho mema ya Siku ya Hali ya Hewa Duniani

’Tuyaelewe mawingu na umuhimu wake’
(Understanding Clouds)

As part of implementation of the Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS) programme in Tanzania, Tanzania Meteorological Agency (TMA) organized a District Level Stakeholders Consultation Workshop on The National Framework for Climate Services (NFCS) in Kiteto District, Manyara Region, which was held on 23rd February, 2017. The main objective was to share the progress in the preparation of the NFCS to stakeholders and solicit more inputs and comments for its improvement. The workshop was attended by experts (from Kiteto District Council, Tanzania Red Cross and representatives from Civil Society Organizations), community leaders, policy makers, farmers and pastoralists.



The workshop was officiated by speech from the Guest of Honour, the District Executive Director (DED) of Kiteto District Council, Mr. Tamim Kambo, and the Director General of TMA and Permanent Representative of Tanzania with WMO, Dr. Agnes Kijazi.  In their speech, both Mr. Kambo  and Dr. Kijazi thanked the Royal Government of Norway, World Meteorological Organization  and all GFCS partners for supporting the initiatives to enhance climate services in Tanzania. 



The workshop programme comprised of presentations on the status of GFCS implementation in Tanzania and  the draft NFCS. After the presentations, participants were organized in three groups to review the draft NFCS and provide comments and inputs for its improvement.



Some of the key comments and recommendations from the stakeholders were:

ü  The document need to be aligned with the National strategies and policies including the National development vision (Vision  2025),

ü  Priority sectors need to be expounded to include Water, Energy and Tourism

ü  Livestock sector should be treated with more weight and should be mentioned in the document and should not be hidden in Agriculture

ü  More awareness on climate and climate change and socio-economic benefits of weather and climate information is needed. Awareness and sensitization should also target Tribal Leaders and Private Sectors

ü  The document should be produced in both English and Swahili.

ü  TMA should establish and expand observation and monitoring Network in Kiteto and other districts.
