CORDEX-Africa Workshop

Leading into the IPCC AR5 process, CORDEX will be a leading contributor of African regional climate
change information, which is essential for supporting adaptation actions and the development of national
and international policy response. Set against this, however, is the recognition of a critical shortage in
Africa of scientific capacity to engage with the complexities of the necessary research for generating
relevant and context specific knowledge. However, many non-African groups have indicated interest in
downscaling the region. It is therefore essential to co-ordinate the downscaling and data analysis effort
within the tight IPCC AR5 timeline, hence the urgent need for this workshop.
