Today, the Benin DECIMALS team published their first paper in Earth’s Future, exploring how SRM could affect the West African monsoon.
In January, global SRM research reached an important milestone: the publication of the world’s first African research paper on solar geoengineering.
January saw a landmark for the global evaluation of SRM and also a landmark for SRMGI. A research team based at the University of Cape Town published the first African research paper on SRM, and first to come from SRMGI’s DECIMALS Fund.
In mid-December, SRMGI supported the South Africa DECIMALS team to present their work to the American Geophysical Union fall meeting in San Francisco.
We extend our congratulations to Wilfred Francis Domingo and Olabi Léonard Worou from Benin. Along with José Ricardo Kouakou from Côte d’Ivoire, they became the first African students to defend master’s theses on SRM in 2019.
