The two-year Master’s Research Program on Climate Change and Education in the Gambia builds climate change expertise of students from the ten West African WASCAL countries in an inspiring, multi-disciplinary and intercultural learning environment.

Each year, ten to twenty students are admitted to the program, which has a focus on developing skills in communication, education and public relations. These skills are highly relevant for policy-advice, public awareness building on climate change, as well as for the implementation of adaptation programs.
