WASS: WASCAL Science Symposium

The WASCAL 2022 Science Symposium brings together scientists, policymakers, and key stakeholders to share knowledge on advances and innovation in combating climate change and improving livelihoods. The main goal of this year’s symposium is to showcase the research and innovation in the different thematic areas of the current WASCAL WRAP 2.0 projects. Beyond that, it aims at customizing and integrating climate services to policymakers, fostering science and policy dialogues for a multi-stakeholder framework on adaptation, mitigation, and climate finance among the ECOWAS sub-region while promoting SMEs, NGOs, and other institutions advancing the cause of climate action, technology & innovation in Africa.

Our project will participate with two interesting oral presentations from two of our PhD students:
