Mitigating climate change impacts on African regions

Financed under 7th FWP, a key pillar for the European Research Area (ERA),  and  for an amount of 1.27 million euro, the AFRICAN Climate Project has been launched. Its main aim is the development, operation and promotion of a web-based Knowledge Platform for efficient dissemination of climate change research results and good practices, to encourage users for uptake of success stories and research knowledge in new projects. Thereby, the project will contribute to mitigate climate change impacts on African regions and help communities to adapt to the changing climatic conditions.
Emphasis will be placed on a variety of innovative and creative web functionalities (e-tools) when developing the interactive, multimedia, pan-continental, multi-lingual and interdisciplinary AFRICAN Climate Platform. The new platform visitors, the already registered users and the members of the online communities will be facilitated by the editorial team to actively participate in knowledge exchange and uptake of research results. The high profile consortium includes a large variety of experienced EU and African organizations, corresponding to the diversity of target audience addressed by the call.
