The lecturers are a broad coalition of climate researchers and educators based in Norway, South Africa and France. We aim to create an environment where students, early-career researchers, lecturers, and practitioners across disciplines and sectors can together learn, discuss and re-interpret the latest knowledge at the forefront of climate risk resilience and adaptation in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The first annual school is co-organised by the CATER and CONFER projects and will be held in Naivasha, Kenya between 31 October and 9 November 2023.
The school is open for applications from PhD students, postdoctoral researchers, early-career researchers, practitioners (e.g., employees at relevant government or non-governmental agencies and private sector employees) who are engaged with, working in a sector threatened by, or generally interested in learning about, climate risk, resilience and adaptation. Other applications (from, e.g., Master’s students) will be considered on an individual basis if there is space (admission is competitive). We aim for a multidisciplinary cohort with a rough 50/50 balance of participants from Africa and elsewhere, and an equitable gender balance.
