The Department of Earth and Climate Sciences of the University of Nairobi organized a free online webinar and discussions on the impacts of COVID-19 on geoscience research. The webinar will provided insights into impacts on departmental learning operations and field-based research, as well as an understanding of the impacts of the pandemic on the communities in the field-based laboratories (research areas). In addition, the webinar included student perspectives on CoVID 19 in the learning environment.
The REACH Kenya Programme based in the Institute of Climate Change and Adaptation (ICCA) hosted the webinar. REACH is, in brief, a nine-year (2015-2024) programme to improve water security for five million poor people in Africa and South Asia by delivering world-class science that transforms policy and practice. The programme, funded by the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO), brings together a consortium of global leaders in water science, policy and practice. In Kenya, the REACH Programme has established the Turkana and Kitui Observatories. Further information can be obtained from [http://reachwater.org.uk/]."
