GCRF African SWIFT Project Kick-Off Meeting

The NCAS – led Global Challenges Research Fund African Science for Weather Information and Forecasting Techniques (GCRF African SWIFT) project held their kick-off meeting in Dakar, Senegal from 13 – 17 November, 2017.

The project meeting in Dakar was an opportunity for the team to lay out the groundwork for the four-year project, which aims to improve tropical forecasting ability, build capacity within African forecasting agencies, and improve communication links to forecast users. The fulfilment of these aims will greatly benefit African populations and demonstrate forecasting capability in the wider developing world.
