  • 1-5 October 2015: Project Kick-off meeting, Wallingford, UK 

This week long event was a productive time for the project as it united all members working on AMMA-2050. Representatives from all the work packages were present and for the first time we sat together to develop our detailed plans. Given the cross-sectoral work of AMMA-2050 discussion focused on the metrics of high impact weather, plans for cross-cutting case studies and understanding of the decision making context of our pilot studies in Senegal and Burkina Faso.

  • 23 September 2014: First Stakeholder Engagement event, Dakar Senegal

In an effort to ensure maximum uptake and embed the opinions of end-users into the project, representatives of relevant ongoing regional initiatives were invited to raise awareness of the proposed work and to participate in developing mechanisms for co-production. Sharing of best practices at this early stage provided support for cross-discipline collaborations planned over the duration of AMMA-2050. In this way we were able to identify collaborations with other ongoing regional programmes and projects and incorporate their needs into the project planning process.

  • 22-24 September 2014: Project inception meeting hosted by : ANACIM and LPOAF/UCAD 

First gathering of the workpackage leaders to develop and plan the work on the project proposal. It was hosted at the offices of ANACIM with much support from partners at UCAD and ISRA. One of the main goals of the workshop was to bring together the West African and the European partners in order to forge a coherent proposal, with a balanced division of roles across partners. This meeting laid the foundation of our project design.
