Manchester Metropolitan University, Addis Ababa University, the Research and Transfer Centre “Applications of Life Sciences” of the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences, and the International Climate Change Information Programme (ICCIP), in collaboration with various agencies are organising a Symposium on Climate Change Adaptation in Africa which will focus on “fostering African resilience and capacity to adapt”. The Symposium will be held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia 21-23 February 2016, and will provide a platform to share research and experiences from projects and best practices that are relevant and based in Africa.
The knowledge sharing which will take place at the symposium will be used to document a book titled “Climate Change Adaptation in Africa: fostering African resilience and capacity to adapt” which will form part of the award winning book series “Climate Change Management”. Registration details are available on the Hamburg University of Life Sciences website. The deadline for abstracts is the 30th of November 2015
