An Excerpt from the Editorial
In Africa, the effects of climate change are already being felt and are expected to become even more severe in the coming years. In order to address these challenges, it will be necessary for researchers from a variety of disciplines to work together. A transdisciplinary scientific journal focused on climate studies in Africa could greatly enhance such an effort. A journal with this mandate must provide a platform for researchers from different disciplines to share their findings and contribute to enhancing collaboration on common goals, especially by supporting efforts to leverage appropriate and sustainable funding. It must also serve as a primary resource for policymakers, planners, and practitioners, fast-tracking the latest research into decision-making processes.
