Abstract/Summary

Key messages * More than 2,600 farmers have been trained in the first year rolling out PICSA in Rwanda. * Farmers find the different elements of the PICSA approach useful and are using them in their decision-making processes, namely historical climate information, participatory budgets, and seasonal forecast. * As a result of the PICSA training and the information shared, the vast majority of those farmers are making changes in their crops, livestock, and/or livelihood enterprises. * Farmers are sharing the different PICSA tools and information with their peers.
