European Academic Network for Capacity Development in Climate Change Adaptations
in Africa

About NetCDA

The BMBF-funded project NetCDA aims to strengthen academic education on climate change adaptation strategies in Africa. The project is run by nine German partners in a project consortium in close collaboration with the graduate school programme of the West African Science Service Centre on Climate Change and Adapted Land Use (WASCAL).

Since 2010, WASCAL is dedicated to capacity development and strengthening the research infrastructure related to climate change. The academic education of young professionals in association with the German counterparts is a pivotal component of their work.

Over the next two years, the collaboration project NetCDA aims to:

  1. support WASCAL doctoral students in continuing and successfully completing their research work, including the supervision by German partners and research visits at the German partner institutions for up to six months
  2. strengthen the implementation of a German network of WASCAL graduate schools
  3. initiate an academic network that unites climate change researchers from Europe and Africa who are active in education.
