Climate Chance Summit Africa 2018

Focus group 2 : Research and climate

The research world and its contribution to climate stakes in Africa

Carried by:


Polytechnic institute Félix Houphouët-Boigny, Ivory Coast.

There is general agreement that climate disturbances and their consequences may differ greatly from one region of the globe to another. At
the scale of the African continent, studies on evolution and climate actions are certainly available but they remain very little known to the general public. Moreover, research teams usually work in isolation with often means that limit the relevance of their results. The establishment
a global framework of exchange and a synergy of action between the various teams research on the climate issue is therefore necessary. The Climate Summit Chance Africa 2018 will lay the groundwork for greater momentum and dialogue of the scientific world (in connection with the other actors) on the stakes climate change in Africa.
