Climate Science Research Partnership

CSRP research aims to improve understanding and prediction of climate towards supporting sustainable poverty alleviation

Improving predictions of climate variability and change in Africa

The Climate Science Research Partnership (CSRP) is working with African stakeholders to improve the understanding and practical prediction of African climate to help alleviate poverty.

The CSRP is a partnership between the Met Office Hadley Centre and the UK Government's Department for International Development (DFID) which works in consultation with African stakeholders, to advance the scientific understanding of African climate now and in the future, and bring new science into use.
