Research Fellowships

Focused collaborative research is essential for building predictive capability and practical tools

CSRP-1 Research Fellows are African climate researchers and applied climate scientists/practitioners.

Eleven African climate research scientists and practitioners at African institutes were awarded fellowships to work with Met Office scientists on CSRP-1 research themes. The fellowships covered regional interests across Africa: with 4 fellowships in each of West and East Africa, 2 in southern Africa and 1 in central Africa. Activities included a one-month induction visit to the Met Office, engagement with relevant groups at UK universities, presentations at international climate conferences and a final CSRP-1 assembly held at the 2nd Climate Change and Development for Africa conference (CCDA-II). All 11 fellows published a summary of their work in the first WCRP African Newsletter and 2 fellows have their work published in peer-review journals (see below).

Articles from all 11 fellows, plus an overview of CSRP-1 and the fellowship scheme were published in the Newsletter (November 2012).

Two CSRP fellows have published their fellowship work in peer-reviewed journals. Mr Wilfried Pokam Mba's research on "Identification of Processes Driving Low-Level Westerlies in West Equatorial Africa" has been published in Journal of Climate . Mr Ismaila Diallo's research on "Simulation of the West African monsoon onset using the HadGEM3-RA regional climate model" has been published in Climate Dynamics
