SCIENTISTS URGED TO COLLABORATE WTH POLICY MAKERS TO IMPROVE WEATHER INFORMATION

Scientists have been urged to collaborate with Policy makers to come up with policies that can help advance on weather information

Speaking at WIMEA-ICT workshop held at College of Computing and Information Sciences (CoCIS)Makerere UnivsersityThursday June 25, 2015  Dr. Freddie Ssengooba, Associate Professor from the College of Health Sciences, Makerere University said that it is very vital for scientists already in the field to provide weather information to policy makers to enable them come up with policies intended to improve weather information and circulation in the country.

‘It is essential for the scientists to break down complex issues into essential facts that can be easily understood by the policy makers in formulating their policies,’ he said

Ms. Milly Nattimba asserted that researchers should evaluate alternative action for course in matters of policy making especially in providing weather information to people and provide recommendations for action.

‘Collecting data and never sending it to the public makes weather information useless, automatic weather stations can be attained quickly in areas where there is limited skilled labor for people to easily obtain weather information’ she added.

Nattimba added that there should be a public information strategy developed to guide the public on matters of weather information so that they can get weather information in the cheapest and best way possible.

The media has also been called upon to provide a platform for weather information to be carried and spread to the people
