GRET is co-organising one of nine modules that will be delivered in the Climate sustainable development goals summer school, organised by the French National Research Institute for Sustainable Development (IRD) and Aix-Marseille University (AMU) from 2 to 7 July 2018 in Marseille. This summer school will host approximately 200 attendees, PhD students and development practitioners. Dedicated to SDG 13 relating to the fight against climate changes, it will consider climate issues relating to three main areas: public health, water resources and the Mediterranean region.
The module coordinated by GRET focuses specifically on inclusion of climate in territorial management of runoff water (module F). This module was designed in collaboration with Agence française de développement (AFD), the IRD and the Department of development and restructuring of flood lands (Darzi) (in French) of the city of Dakar, in Senegal.
Firstly, this module will make it possible to present the state of the art in the area of runoff hydrology in West Africa, and in the area of tools for modelling of climate impacts on the latter. Secondly, a practical case study will be presented to participants to place them in a context of flood management planning in Dakar that includes climate impacts.
