Interdisciplinary Remote Sensing, Modeling, and Validation of Environmental Processes, COSPAR Capacity Building Workshop, hosted by the West African Science Service Centre on Climate Change and Adapted Land Use (WASCAL) under its Graduate Research Programme in Climate Change and Land Use (GRP-CCLU) based at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Kumasi, Ghana, brings together an extensive suite of major international research initiatives to convey a coherent knowledge base and best practices in scientific research to young professionals and graduate students in West Africa.

At such a time as this, when space-based interdisciplinary research needs a strong boost in West Africa, these two weeks with experienced professionals are equipping these young scientists to pursue similar collaborative scientific research paradigms within their region. This capacity building initiative provides an excellent avenue to maximize the societal benefits in areas such as agriculture, fire prediction and assessment, air quality, and water resource management. Major American and European space missions are being addressed, including: Landsat, Terra, Aqua, Aura, Meteosat, CALIPSO, and the Sentinel series.
