Join GEO Mountains online!

This event is one of a series of engagements that GEO Mountains is undertaking during 2023 under the Adaptation at Altitude Programme. Overall, the workshop seeks to provide a platform to bring together data providers and data users from a range of disciplines working across the mountains of East Africa.

The workshop aims to:

  • Provide an opportunity for participants to share information and updates regardingmountain monitoring, observations, and data across the region; 

  • Enable participants to explore approaches for comparing in situ climate data with griddedproducts, and thereby develop insights into the utility of widely available climate dataproducts in the region’s mountains (capacity sharing);

  • Networking

Participants will, inter alia, develop skills to compare various climatic datasets and insights into the utility of readily available gridded products in their regions of interest. Early Career Researchers (ECRs) with an interest in the topics, anyone operating weather stations in African mountains (or with access to their data), and representatives of national hydrometeorological agencies are especially encouraged to apply. Colleagues conducting other environmental and social monitoring activities, and those interested in developing skills in climate data intercomparison, are likewise encouraged to apply.  

The event will be held in English and will be free of charge. The number of places is limited. The application deadline for physical attendees is 7 September 2023. Please note that the World Climate Research Programme Open Science Conference 2023 is held in Kigali the same week.
