Overview

This was a research and training project was set up by a team of senior scientists from African and European research institutions and from the well established pan-African research and training network AfNet. It was linked to a project on matter fluxes through UA activities in Niamey (Niger) funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG; BU1308/5-1). Whereas the DFG project emphasizes basic research and compares the reliability of methodological approaches, the applied research proposed by this project was to capitalize on networking opportunities with the existing pan-African network – AfNet (CIAT). It was thus aimed at training highly qualified African junior scientists through workshops, targeted field research and modeling with data collected simultaneously at different sites.
