In the frame of the Climate information for Integrated Renewable Electricity Generation project (CIREG), the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) and the West African Science Service Center on Climate Adaptation and Land Use (WASCAL) co-organized two training workshops (March 11th - 15th in Accra, Ghana and March 18th - 22nd in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso) for the benefit of renewable energy practitioners in West Africa.
The two events were a follow-up to climate services demanded by the project beneficiaries during the first stakeholder workshop in Niamey-Niger (October 1st 4 th 2018). Both workshops provided hands-on training using the Long-range Energy Alternatives Planning system (LEAP) and the Water Evaluation And Planning system (WEAP) tools.
