In collaboration with the International START Secretariat- Washington DC, the Centre for Climate Change Studies organized a 5 day training workshop on proposal writing. The aim of the workshop was to equip the University of Dar es Salaam’s faculty with proposal writing skills. This was in an effort to mainstream climate change issues in the University curriculum. The workshop exposed participants to the process of formulating research objectives and approaches and various scientific research methods. The workshop also acted as a platform for participants to share their ideas and experiences, and approaches to continued learning on research methods.
