(FULL SCHOLARSHIP AVAILABLE)
2021 ADMISSIONS INTO INTERNATIONAL MASTER’S PROGRAMME IN ENERGY AND GREEN HYDROGEN TECHNOLOGY (IMP-EGH): SPECIALTY: PHOTOVOLTAIC AND SYSTEM ANALYSIS FOR GREEN
The West African Science Service Centre on Climate Change and Adapted Land Use (WASCAL), under the sponsorship of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is pleased to announce application for its International Master’s Programme in Energy and Green Hydrogen (IMP-EGH) in all fifteen (15) ECOWAS countries namely: Benin, Burkina Faso, Cabo Verde, Cote d’Ivoire, The Gambia, Ghana, Guinea Conakry, Liberia, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone and Togo.
WASCAL is a wholly West African international organization with focus on academic and transdisciplinary research, building graduate-level scientific capacity and serving policy makers in West Africa with science-based advice on adaptation to Climate Change impacts and land use management. It cooperates with many agencies and universities in the region, providing a knowledge platform of excellence for its partners.
WASCAL is funded by BMBF, multilateral and bilateral partners and its West African member countries.
The International Master’s Programme in Energy and Green Hydrogen (IMP-EGH) is innovative for the West African region and it is designed to prepare the next generation to address the energy challenges of adaptation and resilience to Climate Change in West Africa. The programme’s interdisciplinary approach will allow for a better understanding of present-day energy infrastructures in West Africa, their strengths and weaknesses, energy policies, practices in a changing climate context and the search for sustainable solutions.
Through this present call, Abdou Moumouni University of Niamey is launching its Master’s Research Programme (MRP) in Green Hydrogen for the 2021-2022 academic year. The programme provides full scholarship to successful candidates from ECOWAS member countries. Benin, Burkina Faso, Cabo Verde, Cote d’Ivoire, the Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Liberia, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone and Togo.

CALL FOR APPLICATION
DOCTORAL RESEARCH PROGRAMME IN
CLIMATE CHANGE AND ENERGY (DRP-CCE)
Energy is a major issue in the world. More than 80% of the energy comes from fossil fuels, a finite resource unevenly distributed beneath the Earth's surface. Thus, reserves of fossil fuels are progressively decreasing, and their continued use produces harmful pollutants and greenhouse gases associated with global warming and climate change. But energy is a basic necessity for human activity and economic and social development.
In its Fourth Assessment Report, the Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change (IPCC) has confirmed that climate change is real and Africa is "one of the most vulnerable continents to climate change and climate variability". The continent’s vulnerability is exacerbated, by endemic poverty, economic and institutional weakness, and limited access to infrastructure, technology, and energy. Thus, for its ongoing development, Africa needs more energy despite its vulnerability to the changing climate.
Moreover, the region continues to face several critical challenges related to its energy sector such as energy access, energy security and unsustainable use of wood resources. The main challenge remains how to satisfy the increasing energy demand without exacerbating observed social,
economic and environmental problems caused by the changing climate. This international Doctoral Research Programme in Climate Change and Energy (DRP-CCE) lead by Abdou Moumouni University of Niamey, in Niger and implemented in collaboration with renowned African, German and others international universities and institutions, aims at offering top-ranking students an integrated learning environment in which they acquire skills that qualify them as climate change and energy specialists.
The DRP-CCE is designed to prepare the next generation to address the energy challenges of adaptation and resilience to climate change in West Africa. The programme interdisciplinary approach allows a better understanding of West Africa energy infrastructures, their strength and weaknesses, energy policies, practices in a changing climate context and the search for sustainable solutions.
Through this present call; University Abdou Moumouni of Niamey is launching its Doctoral Programme on Climate Change and Energy for the academic year 2021-2025. The programme provides full scholarship to successful candidates from WASCAL member countries. Potential candidates are invited to submit an application for selection.
Start date for application: April 8th, 2021
Deadline for application: May 30th, 2021.
