WASCAL in collaboration with NASA and the University of Missouri – Kansas City, will be conducting a Capacity Building Workshop on „Interdisciplinary Remote Sensing, Modeling, and Validation of Environmental Processes“ from June 12 -23, 2017. This workshop, primarily sponsored by the International Committee on Space Research (COSPAR) and WASCAL, is aimed at enabling that extensive knowledge base, capacity, and results developed under major international research programmes/projects to be transferred to young professionals and graduate students in West Africa. By interacting very closely, during a period of two weeks, with experienced professionals in space-based interdisciplinary research, which is in its infancy in West Africa, these young scientists will be equipped to pursue similar collaborative scientific research paradigms within their regions. This will provide an excellent avenue to maximize the societal benefits that result from such interdisciplinary research...
Cet atelier présente le réseau des acteurs qui constitueront « le noyau » pour animer le projet APTE-21 mais aussi tester et standardiser les outils, méthodes, données et autres protocoles de mise en oeuvre.
WASCAL and SASSCAL will be present with a Side Event at this years UN Climate Conference COP 21 in Paris, which starts at the end of November. The Side Event is organized together with BMBF and DLR-PT and will take place in the German Pavilion.
