    This project will build on a process chain for analyzing climate-related hazards, vulnerability and risks in West Africa as developed during the WASCAL project phase 1.0 in Work Package 5.1 (risk assessment and analysis). The overall objective of the WASCAL consolidation phase is to streamline and communicate the developed risk assessment methods and outcomes to the WASCAL Competence Center (CoC), to provide training and empower the center to reproduce the risk mapping procedure and further distribute this knowledge to different target groups in the WASCAL region. In addition, the scientifically developed procedures of risk assessment will be documented in a practitioner-oriented handbook in close collaboration with the WASCAL CoC.
