Background of the Project

Project Background and Objectives

"The WASCAL GRP-CCLU initiative seeks to give support to West African universities to synergize their efforts on a regional basis and maximize their capabalities to improve the training of land use experts and geoscientists for better overall results and increased benefit to West Africa. The programme ultimately aims at strengthening the research, educational and policy capacity and competency of West-African countries to deal with issues of climate change through adapted land use on a scientific basis in partnership with German institutions. It is expected that these PhD fellows upon graduation will be competent for engagement by universities, research institutes, and the public service. "
