Inception workshop was held at Ledger Plaza Bahari beach in Dar es Salaam, between 29th January- 6th February 2018. We hosted all the twenty-seven fellows, the AfriCLP Management team and trainers. The aim of the session was to empower the African Climate change leaders on;
a) interlink-ages between climate change and water in Africa, effective scientific communication and publishing, and approaches to communicating scientific results to policy makers
b) leadership building topics that explicitly help fellows to take their career shift decisions and act according to them
c) structured science-policy-practice dialogue between the beneficiaries
d) to spur interaction and collaboration between fellows.
