LaunchPAD: Climate Model Evaluation Hub for Africa enters its first phase

12 July 2019 // Climate information, Climate science

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.

Training in Python is fundamental for emerging African climate researchers

08 March 2019 // Climate information, Knowledge creation and management

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.
