    As world leaders, experts and policymakers gather in Poland this week for COP24 — the 24th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change — an issue that could be key to the deliberations is a need for high quality and reliable data.

    Solomon Hailu Gebrechorkos, a doctoral researcher from Ethiopia at Germany-based United Nations University Institute for Integrated Management of Material Fluxes and of Resources, conducts research that assesses the quality of climate data for improving water, food, and energy security of millions of people living in East Africa.

    Gebrechorkos talks to SciDev.Net about high quality climate data issues in East Africa, the outcome of his latest research and its relevance to COP24 in Poland this week.
