ACCFP Phase 3 Fellows announced

The African Climate Change Fellowship Program announces its third phase of science and policy fellowships for 2015-2016.  ACCFP offers experiential learning, education, and research and training opportunities to African professionals, researchers and graduate students to build their capabilities for advancing and applying knowledge for climate change adaptation in Africa. ACCFP is jointly administered by the Institute of Resource Assessment (IRA) of the University of Dar es Salaam and START International, Inc. (START).  19 adaptation science fellowships and 12 adaptation policy fellowships have been awarded.  A summary list of fellows is below.  You can view the full more information about the 31 fellows here on the ACCFP announcement.

The ACCFP Adaptation Science Fellowships address climate change impacts and adaptation across spatial scales, based on case studies from across the African continent.  Adaptation Policy Fellowships is to contribute to a greater awareness about climate change and climate change adaptation issues in African decision making processes and begin to engage relevant policy makers on the subject.  ACCFP fellows for 2015-16 are below.
