Welcome to the December 2016 edition of the Future Climate for Africa newsletter


News in Brief


Welcome to the final Future Climate for Africa newsletter for 2016. In this edition you will find information on:
  • The FCFA Africa’s Climate Report 2016;
  • Our engagement at the COP22 in Marrakech;
  • HyCRISTAL’s field visit to communities in Kisumu, Kenya; and
  • Recent publications by FCFA-affilliated researchers.

We are particularly excited about the recent launch of the FCFA digibook “Africa’s Climate: Helping decision-makers make sense of climate information“. It offers a collection of fact sheets covering climate trends for several African sub-regions and countries, alongside overviews of the current state of scientific knowledge and ‘burning scientific questions’ that are currently shaping the climate science research agenda. Please share the report within your networks. We welcome your feedback on the publication.

Should you have any questions on FCFA work we invite you to get in touch with the coordinator of the research consortium working in your region or country, or FCFA’s coordination unit, via our website.


The FCFA newsletter list has grown substantially in 2017. If this is the first edition you’re receiving or you’re still not quite sure what FCFA’s objectives are or how the programme of work is structured, we invite you to watch our 2-minute introductory video and page through our brochure in EnglishFrench or Portuguese.
