Future Climate for Africa hosted the African Climate Risks Conference (ACRC) in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in October 2019 under the theme “dismantling the barriers to urgent climate adaptation action.” It brought together over 350 researchers gathering from 52 different countries across the African continent and abroad to discuss the latest research on African climate. It also provided the opportunity for many FCFA researchers to showcase their findings on the latest climate research from the FCFA programme.

FCFA and the Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN) hosted the first Wikipedia Edit-a-thon on Climate Change in Africa for early to mid career researchers in August 2019. The Edit-a-thon equipped researchers with new skills in how to edit and contribute effectively to Wikipedia, and therefore increase the global exposure and impact of their research on climate change in Africa.
