Forty people, most of them scientists, gathered in Nairobi for the first annual assembly of the CONFER project from November 1- 4 2022. The four-days meet was to discuss, take stock of progress, and plan for the next two years.
CONFER is a research and innovation programme funded by the European Union. It works to improve existing climate services and develop new ones to forecast the start of the rainy season, river flows and floods hotspots, and crop yields.
Below is a wrap up of the annual meet.
