The AMMA-2050 project aims to bring together a broad range of expertise to better understand how West African climate will change, and crucially, to translate this knowledge for decision-makers, explicitly accounting for uncertainty. Applying expert judgement to these outputs, we will identify impacts and adaptation options in water resources and agriculture, including targeted studies on urban flooding and crop breeding. Specialist material will be presented here during the course of the project.
