This paper presents provisional findings on how ICT may be use d to link climate information to livelihood strategies among rural women in Kitui County, Kenya. The paper is based on the results of a scoping study und ertaken in the same place for an on-going PhD resear ch that focuses on climate chan ge awareness among rural Kenyans, while employing empirical methods of data collec tion and analysis. While the sample size for the scoping study was small (20 respo ndents), the relevance of the subject matter and the consistency of the find ings collectively point to a gap in the general research area and offers provisional fi ndings that we offer for scrutiny in this article. Both the PhD project and the scoping study were motivated by the increasing challenges of climate variability and change that affect Sub-Sahara Africa, creating problems such as food insecurity.
