Meet climate change scientist Dr. N’Datchoh Evelyne Touré, who is using the power of mathematics to look at the impact of climate change in Ivory Coast.
Her project is mapping out how the different climatic zones in Ivory Coast will respond to a global warming of 1.5°C and 2°C and determining what impacts these changes may have on temperature patterns and precipitation extremes. Dr. Touré’s research findings will provide valuable information to help develop strategies that will reduce the impact of climate change on agriculture, especially on cocoa production, an important part of the economy in Ivory Coast.
Evelyne is one of the first three Women Climate Change Science Fellows of the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS).
These fellowships are part of a larger program called Mathematical Sciences for Climate Change Resilience (MS4CR). The program’s objective is to support the scientific talent needed to solve the many development challenges facing Africa as a result of climate change.
It is made possible by support from Canada’s International Development Research Centre and the Government of Canada.
