The RAINWATCH Handbook has been designed to help RAINWATCH users navigate the web-based RAINWATCH system. Examples of use include policy discussions within the MoFA (Ministry of Food and Agriculture) to discuss with crop scientists, extension officers and farmers the implications of the RAINWATCH information to improve decision-making through the season. Farmers who are practicing rain-fed or irrigated agriculture require timely, accurate season-to-date and forward looking rainfall information for planning purposes. Another example of use could be to improve information provided to farmers via radio or via NGO activities that require weather information for their projects. The Handbookl includes a series of easy to follow step-by-step visuals based on the RAINWATCH training presentations to help new users/priducers of information understand the different views and content to make informed selections of the available content for their decision use cases.
