Experiences as an inevitable part of the human dimension of research infrastructures

In this pilot we aim to summarise, integrate, and assess the value of existing long-term climate observations in order to provide a guidebook of the lessons learned. These are expected to be an essential part of a future climate observation research infrastructure in Africa.

We have chosen Kenya as the ideal showcase for this pilot, due to the already existing infrastructures for atmospheric observations as well as continuous ecosystem flux measurements, and the well-established long-term cooperation with European scientists.
