About the Second Workshop

The Second EPICC Workshop in Tanzania aims at extending the contacts between the project researchers and the partners. To that end, the project team intends to discuss the partial results in order to assess their utility and acceptance by the partners. The project team also intends to discuss the possibility of research stays at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) and the realization of trainings in the partner institutions. Emphasis will also be given to the analysis of the water-food-energy nexus by the hydrology output and to the coordination of crops and adaption scenarios with regional Institutions.

The event will be organized by the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) in close cooperation with the Tanzanian Ministry of Agriculture (MoA) and the Tanzanian Meteorological Agency (TMA), and with the participation of the German Meteorological Service, the Deutscher Wetterdienst (DWD). The EPICC project started on 1 January 2018, and is expected to be completed by the end of February 2021. It is funded by the International Climate Initiative (IKI), that is supported by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU), on the basis of a decision adopted by the German Bundestag.


Reimbursement

Refreshments and lunch will be provided. Limited travel funds may be available, upon request, for participants travelling from outside of Dar es Salaam. Unfortunately, we are not in a position to reimburse the costs of ground transportation in Dar es Salaam.


Background

The aim of the EPICC project (https://www.pik-potsdam.de/epicc) is to enable climate services and to build capacities by jointly producing science that is necessary for climate change adaptation with three partner countries: Peru, Tanzania and India. The project aims to support resilience against regional climate impacts by developing the use of methods for seasonal forecasts and jointly working on long-term climate scenarios. The focus of the project lies on the water and agriculture sectors as well as the implications for migration patterns and human security. The EPICC project works through science-stakeholder dialogues, joint research, publications and bi-directional research visits and exchanges.

This project is part of the International Climate Initiative (IKI). The Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) supports this initiative on the basis of a decision adopted by the German Bundestag. The Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) is leading the execution of the project together with its project partners The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), based in New Delhi, and the Deutscher Wetterdienst (DWD; German Meteorological Service), based in Hamburg. The project runs within the period of 1st January 2018 until 28th of February 2021.
