Final DACCIWA Newsletter
Final newsletter containing information about recent DACCIWA publications and meetings.
Dear Reader,
the DACCIWA project has now officially ended. A final scientific meeting was successfully held in Yamoussoukro (Ivory Coast) on October 15–17 2018. One of the key outcomes of the project is a dedicated document that summarises all policy-relevant findings in an easy-to-understand way and gives concrete recommendations to policymakers. The content of this document was presented at stakeholder events in Abidjan, Accra, Lomé and Brussels in October and November. We are currently finalising a similar document targeted at operational stakeholders, e.g. national weather services.
The five years of DACCIWA have been a fantastic, exciting and rewarding time. The many researchers involved in the project have significantly advanced what we know about the air quality, weather and climate of southern West Africa. More than fifty papers have been published and there are still many to come in the next months. Most of these are appearing in the dedicated DACCIWA Special Issue in Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics. Through the large field campaign in June-July 2016 a rich and unique observational resource has been created that is now freely available to the research community.
If you missed previous newsletters, you can find them on our webpage www.dacciwa.eu, together with much more information on the project and the involved partners.
Thank you for your continued interest in DACCIWA!
Peter Knippertz, project coordinator
