A climate café is a platform that brings together producers of climate information, communication, and end users of climate information to discuss and bring their expertise together to accelerate the demand and use of climate information.
The climate café also gives a chance for the media to rub shoulders and interact with the providers of climate information. This gives a chance to each party to iron out its differences with the other.
Climate cafés are solely an idea developed by the Network for Climate Journalists of the Great Horn of Africa (NECJOGHA). NECJOGHA brings together journalists who cover climate in the 11 countries of the Greater Horn of Africa namely Burundi, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Kenya, Rwanda, Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda
