During the last three months of 2014, PI David Adukpo and two of his students attended the Capacity Building Workshop on Modeling of Regional Climate and Air Quality for West Africa in Abidjan, Ivory Coast and presented preliminary study results. Researchers and students worked further on two manuscripts, while a third was published in the Research Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Management.
Students visited the International Center for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) in Italy for a week-long training course on how to use climate monitoring services and how to produce suitable research products. Back in Ghana, a retreat was held at the Pempamsie Hotel involving the researchers and the students. The goals of the retreat were to plan the second PEER-University of Cape Coast training workshop, to discuss the students’ thesis methodology, and to discuss and produce their reports.
