Dr. Oleg Shipin, as a participant of the Climate Change related activities at AIT jointly with the RRCAP team colleagues presented a review of his recent efforts “Africa and Asia: Exchange on Science-based observation for monitoring, mitigation and adaptation”.

The author’s recent South-to-South contributions to science-based strategic developments in the field of Climate Change in Central Africa in the light of South East Asian developments were discussed. Technical Research-based Assistance for development of the national Low Carbon strategy, Technology Needs Assessment and Climate Finance in Central African Republic feature many parallels with other global regions. Synergies with South East Asia and Southern Africa are thought to be also mutually enhancing for setting up watch observatory for health and environmental risks in the Basin of the Congo river, particularly in the Republic of Congo (Brazzaville).
