CS4RRA 2023 • Climate Services for Risk Reduction in Africa

The Climate Services for Risk Reduction in Africa 2023 (CS4RRA) initiative, supported by the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research and the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, aims to promote climate resilience in Africa and to meet the challenges that this brings.

A series of four webinars, bringing together African and European experts, is being implemented in the West African region by IRD and the West African Science Service Centre on Climate Change and Adapted Land Use (WASCAL).

Objectives

  • Strengthen climate resilience in Africa in order to raise awareness about climate knowledge, identify key services for adaptation to climate change and disaster risk reduction
  • Examine potential areas for cooperation in research on climate risk management, resilience and adaptation in West Africa and thus defragment the programme landscape in favour of common goals and common impact of funding
  • Describe pathways and priorities for research, innovation and capacity development in the area of Climate Services for Risk Reduction that contribute to the new Innovation Agenda between African Union and European Union2
  • Identify actionable and complementary steps to boost KIC via trilateral or multilateral joint calls
    or actions (South-South and South-North).
