Titre : CLIMAG-WEST AFRICA A network for : harmonisation of climate prediction for mitigation of global change impact in sudano-sahelian west Africa

Région : Sahel

Code du projet : EVK2-CT-2000-80001 FP5-EESD

Durée : From 2001-03-01 to 2003-08-31

Descriptif
Sahel is one of the most fragile of the world. Many efforts have been made by International Agencies, the EU, and the international cooperation, but any increased pressure, such as climate change, puts at risk of seasonal prediction for accelerates natural resource degradation. The use of seasonal prediction for decision-making will contribute to the adaptation to global change. The project aim is to contribute to harmonise the effort done to reduce food insecurity by improved regional capacity to produce and apply seasonal climate prediction. This will be achieved adding value to ongoing activities by networking and organising meetings and trainings for technical personnel. The proposal is directed to request an EU contribution jointly with the self-contribution of the consortium to develop an integrated network of European and African scientists and to build capacity equivalent to those funded by APN in Asia and IAI in South America.
