The Future Climate for Africa programme has made substantial progress in understanding the African climate and has developed methodologies to evaluate the regional climate processes and impact-relevant indices which matter locally. LaunchPAD has been established to build upon these novel findings and methods to extend the work to more regions and systems, and to embed tools into automated software that will fast-track the understanding of how well climate models simulate climate dynamics in African regions.
Welcome to the June 2019 edition of the Future Climate for Africa newsletter
A key output of Future Climate for Africa (FCFA) projects has been focusing on capacity development of Early Career Researchers (ECRs) through consortium, cross-consortia and external initiatives. It is hoped that through these initiatives ECRs will have increased knowledge, capacity and skills to enhance their development and/or use of climate information.
Welcome to the December 2018 edition of the Future Climate for Africa newsletter
On 13 September an international team of scientists from Kenya, Ghana, Cameroon, South Africa and the United Kingdom travelled to the School of Geography and the Environment (SoGE) in Oxford to discuss an enduring problem: how to improve climate models over Africa.
Welcome to the March 2018 edition of the Future Climate for Africa newsletter.
Watch the webinar- How can climate models be improved over Africa? Investigating global models with local knowledge
Watch FCFA's latest webinar on how global climate models can be improved over Africa with local knowledge.
This blog is an updated version of a previously published blog looking at advances in CP4-A simulations and its applications for regional and local scale climate processes.
What are convection-permitting models and how can they improve understanding of extreme weather in Africa?
This blog is the second in a series examining improvements in climate models. The blog details how improvements in convection permitting models can improve our understanding of extreme weather in Africa.
