Southern African Science Service Centre for Climate Change and Adaptive Land Management (SASSCAL)

 

Overview
The Southern African Science Service Centre for Climate Change and Adaptive Land Management (SASSCAL) is a joint initiative of Angola, Botswana, Namibia, South Africa, Zambia, and Germany, responding to the challenges of global change. The SASSCAL will improve the capacities to provide sound science-based solutions for current problems and future risks in the region, in particular regarding climate change and the associated demands concerning land management practices of local players. To this end, the centre will contribute to strengthening existing and developing new capacities for application-oriented scientific research and science-policy consultations on climate change, adapted land-use and sustainable development in the region. In parallel to this initiative in southern Africa, in West Africa a West African Science Service Center on Climate change and Adapted Land Use (WASCAL) is presently being developed.
