SASSCAL II – Research Call

The Southern African Science Service Centre for Climate Change and Adaptive Land Management) (SASSCAL), a joint initiative by Angola, Botswana, Germany, Namibia, South Africa and Zambia, started operation in 2010 aims to become a regionally relevant and internationally acknowledged institution, serving the region with scientifically sound information and knowledge related to climate change and adaptive land management.

The SASSCAL research framework addresses regional research needs and imperatives within the context of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Paris Agreement, the AU 2063 Vision and Action Plan, the African global change research initiatives, national policies as well as the various SADC action and development plans, especially on science, technology and innovation as well as on climate change. To achieve this goal, several objectives for SASSCAL’s research framework were identified and, thus, will provide the basis for this Call for research proposals.

Please refer to the Attached SASSCAL II – Research Call for details and deadlines for submissions of proposals for the future research programmes, in the next phase of SASSCAL (2019-2022).
