Offer: Africa Climate Change Fellowship

The ACCFP offers experiential learning, education, and training opportunities to African educators and graduate students to enhance their capabilities for advancing and applying knowledge for climate change adaptation in Africa. Deadline for Applications: March 12, 2012.

This Call solicits applications for Adaptation Teaching Fellowships. This type of Fellowship was not offered in the most recent Call for ACCFP Applications (December 2011). University educators who are citizens of an African nation and based at an African institution are eligible to apply. Applications are particularly encouraged from women and traditionally under-represented regions and countries in Africa. The ACCFP will support clearly defined activities that advance teaching, curriculum development and/or educational outreach in Climate Change Adaptation.

About Adaptation Teaching Fellowships

The ACCFP recognizes the critical need for enhancing university curricula and teacher training in ways that take into account climatic issues and related challenges and opportunities related to climate change adaptation. This recognition is shared across the Continent as more and more African universities attempt to “mainstream” climate change in their curriculum in order to provide future generations with the knowledge, skills and competencies they need to contribute to the sustainability of climate change adaptation initiatives while also building networks and sharing information and expertise between academic institutions.

The ACCFP acknowledges the potential of African universities to support and inform societal efforts on adaptation and is committed to partnering with universities to reinvigorate teaching, revamp curricula, and enable effective communication between scientists and communities of policy and practice. This realization drives the program’s provision of Adaptation Teaching Fellowships, which offer targeted opportunities to enable African educators to promote innovation in climate education, build personal teaching skills, share experiences and coordinate partnerships between departments and institutions for curriculum and educational reform.
