DecLaRe project held its annual workshop from 29th November to 2nd December 2023 in Parakou (Benin) after one year of impactful stride with intense fieldworks. The annual meeting aimed:

  • To discuss progress made during the first year
  • To efficiently plan upcoming activities in 2024
  • To encourage interdisciplinarity within the project’s team
  • To actively engage with stakeholders
  • To mentor PhD Fellows

To engage with stakeholders, we organised a field visit during which we got the opportunity to discuss #participatory_soil_mapping with stakeholders and to observe local cheese (Wagashi) making.

DecLaRe partners (University of Parakou, University for Development Studies, WASCAL, Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, University of Hohenheim, University of Göttingen, and University of Kassel) are grateful to the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, Germany (BMBF) for funding this project and for its active participation in our 2023 annual workshop.
