Carleton University is launching a $1.8-million program to train tomorrow’s climate change research leaders in partnership with three African universities and the Canadian Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Advanced Scholars Program.

Societal Transformation and Climate Change: Training the Next Generation of Scholars in sub-Sahara Africa and Canada, which includes nearly $500,000 in funding from the scholars program announced today, involves universities in Tanzania, Malawi and Ghana and will take place from 2017 to the end of 2020.

The project will focus on the next generation of doctoral and early-career researchers of the Queen Elizabeth Scholars Program to tackle the multi-faceted problem of climate change, including its global and regional implications. The scholars will focus on issues related to the transition to less carbon-intensive economies and improving community resilience to climate change impacts
