The Climate Information Prize (CIP) was a competition that ran in Kenya between 2015 and 2018. It aimed to encourage local innovators to develop climate information services that could be accessed and used by farmers, so they could reduce their vulnerability to climate change.
The CIP was run under the UK Aid-funded Ideas to Impact programme, which was established to test the value of using innovation prizes to achieve international development outcomes, often to encourage people to act differently over months or years.
This brief provides a snappy overview of what happened when Ideas to Impact ran the CIP and the key findings emerged from its evaluation. If you are interested in the details, read the full report here.
The CIP was delivered by IMC Worldwide with Cardno as the local implementing agent and was designed by the Institute of Development Studies.
