Short summary
Agrometeorological services often do not cover the last mile – not reaching, not being understood, nor being trusted by smallholder farmers living in remote areas. To help bridge this gap across the last mile, the workshop on effective communication of agrometeorological services took place during the EMS2022. This paper presents the outcomes and recommendations on how to bridge the gap between information providers and information users.
