A key aim of FCFA is to generate fundamentally new climate science focused on Africa and pilot the use of improved medium- to long-term (5 – 40 year) climate change information in development projects.
As one of FCFA’s synthesis products, this guide provides a practical overview of CP4-Africa, the first pan-African, kilometre-scale convection-permitting regional climate simulations, run as part of the FCFA research team IMPALA (Improving Model Processes for African Climate). The simulations have provided an unprecedented level of climate detail across Africa and initial studies have shown improvements in the simulation of many, but not all, aspects of the African climate.
Some examples of key advances emerging through CP4-Africa simulations include better representation of: The spatial distribution of daily rainfall patterns; The characteristics and intensity of rainfall; and Annual cycles of tropical-extratropical cloud bands. In addition to producing improved simulations of the current climate, CP4-Africa simulations provide enhanced projections for future rainfall extremes across Africa.
