Collaboration on plans for climate research centre by Southern African countries

Five Southern African countries recently committed to establish their own research centre which intends to provide scientific data on land management and the region’s efforts to mitigate climate change. The Southern African Science Service Centre for Climate Change and Adaptive Land Management (Sasscal) is expected to open in August in Windhoek, Namibia. The centre will be partly funded by Germany, which pledged to provide €50 million over four years. It will provide support for cross-border research on climate change and land management for Namibia, South Africa, Angola, Botswana and Zambia. Read the full article here.
