dc.description.abstract Communication of climate information to farmers is influenced by collaborations between governmental organizations and nongovernmental organizations. However, information flow and exchange through organizational collaboration networks has limited effect on improving farmers’ knowledge about climate risks, impacts and available risk response options. This is largely because the feedback flow of information from farmers to national level organizations has not been effective in addressing localized climate and agriculture challenges. Using network analysis as an analytical framework, the paper estimated networks’ core-periphery, density, reciprocity and degree centrality. There is insufficient engagement of national organizations in funding projects on climate information generation and dissemination. en
