Welcome to WASCAL

With climate change being one of the most severe challenges to rural Africa in the 21st century, West Africa is facing an urgent need to develop effective adaptation and mitigation measures.

WASCAL (West African Science Service Center on Climate Change and Adapted Land Use) is a large-scale research-focused Climate Service Center designed to help tackle this challenge and thereby enhance the resilience of human and environmental systems to climate change and increased variability. It does so by strengthening the research infrastructure and capacity in West Africa related to climate change and by pooling the expertise of ten West African countries and Germany.

Funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), WASCAL is implemented in a collaborative effort by West African and German partners.

The WASCAL Data Discovery Portal provides public access for scientists and stakeholders to the WASCAL spatial data infrastructure (SDI). Within WASCAL a large number of heterogeneous data are collected. In order to facilitate the acquisition, provision, integration, management and exchange of these heterogeneous data resources within a scientific and non-scientific multiuser (distributed) environment the spatial data infrastructure (SDI) WADI (WAscal Data Infrastructure) has been build-up.
