About our work

The CSRP has five research areas, each headed by a Met Office scientist.

The CSRP has five different work streams, each led by a Met Office Hadley Centre scientist, designed to achieve a set of project objectives. The project objectives have been refined through consultation with African stakeholders, with key aims to determine the variables/parameters for which improved prediction is most urgent and to identify priority requirements for capacity building.


Consultation The aim was to help identify research directions that would best contribute towards enhancing the range and quality of climate information available to users in Africa.
