Applied research fund Scientific Capacity Development (SCD) study




July 26, 2016


A major challenge for advancing climate science in Africa is the lack of a critical mass of capacitated African researchers with the skill sets, research and publishing networks, and resources to conduct ‘big science.’ This CDKN project has been commissioned to inform FCFA on how it could best design potential scientific capacity development interventions. The focus will be on understanding which competencies and skills climate scientists value at different points in their career development, how they go about acquiring these skills as part of their career trajectory, and how best specific capacity development support interventions can be structured to assist them. Work will be led by the African Climate and Development Initiative at the University of Cape Town. Read the CDKN project page here.
