Wanasayansi ya hali ya hewa (Meteorologists) wamekutana katika warsha ya siku moja iliyofanyika tarehe 06 Julai 2015 katika ukumbi wa mikutano wa Mamlaka ya Hali ya Hewa (TMA). Warsha hiyo ambayo ulikuwa na lengo la kujadili masuala mbalimbali yakiwemo kubobea (specialization) katika matumizi ya sayansi ya hali ya hewa kwenye sekta mbalimbali kama vile kilimo, afya, nishati, maji, usafiri wa anga na kwenye maji n.k; ushiriki wa TMA katika kuchangia masuala ya hali ya hewa ya kikanda na kimataifa, na wataalam kujikita katika tafiti zenye kuchangia katika maendeleo ya taifa letu.

Akizungumza katika warsha hiyo, Mkurugenzi Mkuu wa TMA  Dkt. Agnes Kijazi alisema dhumuni ni kuangalia changamoto zinazokabili sayansi ya hali ya hewa hasa katika kipindi hiki cha mabadiliko ya tabia nchi hivyo basi kuangalia jinsi ya kuboresha taaluma ya hali ya hewa ikiwa ni pamoja  na kufanya tafiti zenye tija kwa maedeleo ya nchini yetu. Aidha alielezea pia umuhimu wa kubobea (specialization) kwenye utoaji wa huduma za hali ya hewa kwa sekta zingine.

Dkt Kijazi aliongeza kwa kusema, warsha kama hizi ni fursa nzuri  kwa wanasayansi kutambua nafasi zao na mchango wao wa kutoa  huduma bora za hali ya hewa kwa jamii.

Warsha hiyo imeandaliwa katika mpango wa TMA kuboresha huduma zake ili kufikia dira waliyojiwekea ya kuwa kitovu cha ubora cha utoaji huduma za hali ya hewa ‘Centre of excellence in provision of meteorological services’
 Dkt. Agnes Kijazi akisisitiza jambo kwa wanasayansi katika warsha ya siku moja ya wataalamu hao.

Mkurugenzi Mkuu wa Mamlaka ya Hali ya Hewa (TMA) na Mwakilishi wa Kudumu wa Tanzania katika Shirika la Hali ya Hewa Duniani (WMO) Dk.Agnes Kijazi amesisitiza matumizi ya mifumo ya modeli za Kisayansi. Akizungumza wakati akifunga mafunzo ya hali ya hewa kwa kutumia modeli ya PRECIS (Providing Regional Climates for Impact Studies) yalifanyika kuanzia tarehe 29 Juni hadi 03 Julai 2015., Dkt. Kijazi aliwataka wanawarsha kutumia utaalamu waliopata katika kuhakikisha wanaboresha utoaji huduma za hali ya hewa kwa maendeleo ya nchi. Aidha alitoa shukrani za dhati kwa Serikali ya Norway, WMO na Ofisi ya Hali ya Hewa Uingereza kwa kuwezesha mafunzo hayo kupitia mpango wa GFCS.

Kwa niaba ya wanawarsha wote, Bw. Clement kutoka Malawi aliwashukuru wawezeshaji wote hususani TMA kwa kufanikisha mafunzo hayo na kuahidi kutumia utaalamu waliopata katika kuboresha taarifa za hali ya hewa kwa watumiaji maalum kama Kilimo na afya kwa maeneo husika.

Mafunzo hayo yalihusisha vipengele vilivyojikita katika ‘Modelling of the Earth Climate System’, ‘downscaling techniques, designing RCM experiments’, ‘LINUX’, ‘uncertainties in the model and data analysis’. Vipengele hivi vilikuwa muhimu sana kwa vile vitasadia katika kutatua changamoto za utoaji huduma za hali ya hewa kwa maendeleo ya taifa.

The Director General of Tanzania Meteorological Agency (TMA) and Permanent representative of Tanzania wth the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) Dr. Agnes Kijazi urged on the use of scientific climate modelling systems based on PRECIS. During the closing ceremony of training workshop on Climate Modelling held in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania which took place from 29th June to 03rd July 2015, Dr. Kijazi called for all participants to make good use of the knowledge received as well as ensuring positive changes and good contributions into their respective services delivery. Dr. Kijazi also thanked the Government of Norway, the WMO and UK Met Office and for the support through Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS) project. The workshop was attended by a number of meteorologists from TMA and Malawi Meteorological Department.

On behalf of other participants, Mr. Clement from Malawi Meteorological Department thanked the facilitators and organizers of the workshop and insisted that participants will use the knowledge to develop the best products for specific use such as agriculture and health for specific in respectively area.

The training topics based on Modelling of the Earth Climate System, downscaling techniques, designing RCM experiments, LINUX, uncertainties in the model and data analysis. The training was conducted in collaboration between TMA and UK Met Office. The topics were very useful and will contribute well to the process of addressing the challenges posed by climate change in various socio-economic sectors.
