Dynamics-aerosol-chemistry-cloud interactions in West Africa

Welcome to the DACCIWA website

The Dynamics-aerosol-chemistry-cloud interactions in West Africa (DACCIWA) project ist funded by the European Union 7th Framework Programm to investigate the influence of anthropogenic and natural emissions on the atmospheric composition over South West Africa and to assess their impact on human and ecosystem health and agricultural productivity.

It is a large project (~€10M) with project partners in Germany, France, UK, Switzerland, Ghana and Nigeria.

It forms part of a cluster of projects funded by the European Union to investigate aerosols and climate.
