CMRA 2021 Summer School in Mali

Modelling approaches for climate risk and climate change adaptions in the context of sustainable intensification in semi-arid West Africa

The Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research (ZALF) and the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) invite applications for an international summer school that will take place at the ICRISAT regional headquarter in Bamako, Mali.

The summer school aims to enhance awareness of the state of the art in crop modelling for addressing climate risk and sustainable intensification among the region’s next generation of researchers and agricultural policy makers. It is designed to provide students with a broad overview of system’s analysis, best practices in model application climate change impact assessments, as well as emerging applications and challenges for crop modelling to support sustainable intensification of smallholder farming systems.

Date

The summer school will be held from February 21-28, 2021 (COVID-19 dependent back-up date: September 5–12, 2021)

Location

International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT), Bamako, Mali

Applications are invited from highly-motivated middle stage PhD students and postdocs from West Africa and Germany with a background in agricultural or environmental sciences and some prior modelling experience.

Students will be equipped with knowledge and skills to use crop models in the design and assessment of resilient and productive cropping systems.

Offered in French and English, the course will combine lectures with international experts, together with hands on tutorials, and group work and discussions. The maximum number of participants is 26.

Applications can be made in English or French. The application language will be used to place selected candidates in project and tutorial groups.
