New UNU-ISP project focus on climatic and ecosystem changes in Africa
The United Nations University Institute for Sustainability and Peace (UNU-ISP) has launched a project focused on climatic and ecosystem changes in Africa.
The UNU-ISP project “Enhancing Resilience to Climate and Ecosystem Changes in Semi-Arid Africa: An Integrated Approach” is one of the elements of the Science and Technology Research Partnership for Sustainable Development (SATREPS), a collaborative programme of the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA). UNU-IAS Director Takeuchi will act as the project leader.
The goal of this five-year project (2011—2016) is to propose effective and implementable measures to build an integrated resilience enhancement strategy. It is expected that this “Ghana model” could potentially be applied across the African Savannah.
