GEO Week & Ministerial Summit
November 6 -10, Cape Town, South Africa
KADI will be presented in a show case side event on Tuesday November 7 at 11:00. The title of the session is “Co-creating climate services from data to knowledge in Africa” and includes Andreas Brink (European Commission), Theresia Bilola (Integrated Carbon Observation System – ICOS ERIC) and Cheick Mbow (Centre de Suivi Écologique – CSE) as presenters.
The event will address the importance of partnership and co-creation in the climate services landscape. Establishing strong partnerships which lead to co-design of tailored solutions is, in many cases, the efficient way forward to also ensure ownership of the solutions. Following a policy-driven initial flash talk by the moderator, the panel will discuss the importance of data, information (model) and services both in the context of adaptation and mitigation, building on the EU flagship initiatives Regional Centres of Excellence in Africa. The session will then move to showcase a concrete example, the KADI project. KADI develops co-designed services to address climate-related challenges in Africa, with a dedicated focus on strategic pilots (i.e.cities).
