Ashrafi Zaki, a meterologist from  the Egyptian climate authority who was part of the Egyptian Delegation during  the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris  explained in an interview how his country is working to raise awareness on climate change and agriculture. Egypt authorities promote climate information through  a strategy:  a training workshop available for journalists. Journalists  are trained  on how to  understand the weather forecast.
