Tailored Opportunities: Call for papers: Symposium on Climate Change Adaptation in Africa


The second Symposium on Climate Change Adaptation in Africa will take place on May 14-15, 2018 in Ibadan, Nigeria.

It is organized  by the University of Ibadan (Nigeria), Manchester Metropolitan University (UK),  the Research and Transfer Centre “Sustainable Development and Climate Change Management” of the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (Germany) and the International Climate Change Information Programme (ICCIP).

The Symposium will be a truly interdisciplinary event, mobilising African and non-African scholars undertaking research and/or executing climate change projects in the African continent.

Papers produced, reviewed and accepted for the Symposium will be published in the “Handbook of Climate Change Resilience”, a volume of the award-winning book series “Climate Change Management” published by Springer.


Researchers, academicians, students, practitioners who have undertaken research or have findings or experiences to share.

The full contact details about the author(s) need to be provided. Abstracts should be written in the third person and not in the first or second one (e.g. I, me, or my paper). Please see below a sample abstract. Authors whose abstracts have been accepted will receive further details on how to submit their full papers, and further logistical information. Please send your abstract to: info@iccip.ne

    1. Dear Hintsa. Thank you for the interest on the opportunity. The benefits can be found by visiting the link provided in the post. However, regardless of whether this event is a self sponsored or not, it would be very valuable for an academician to attend an international conference like this one. It will provide opportunities for networking or meeting and establishing connections with scientists in your field. You might also be able to publish your presented paper in an international proceeding.
