Was an open platform for sharing latest African climate research among researchers policy makers, practitioners and development patterns. The conference brought together academicians, meteorology agencies,researchers, NGOs, government agencies and development patterns to share knowledge on climate services in Africa.\n

\n

The conference aimed at disseminating results and share insights from new and on-going climate science and adaptation research in Africa. It also aimed at contributing to efforts to address barriers to more effective use of climate information to ensure great impact and legacy of on going research programs.
