The Ministry of Environment, Water and Natural Resources is developing a System for Land-Based Emissions Estimation in Kenya (SLEEK), which will allow the Government to track carbon emissions from the land sector.
SLEEK will combine weather data, biological growth models (capturing carbon emissions and sequestration from trees, crops and soils), and lands cover maps to estimate the changes in Kenya's land-sector emissions over time. It will also develop scenarios and models to assess changes in carbon emissions in response to land use changes.
The program is supported by the Government of Australia through the Clinton Foundation.
As the part of the process of developing the system, a number of Masters and PhD scholarships will be offered to Kenyan citizens to support the development of the system. These scholarships will include tuition, stipend and required equipment. The topic will cover:
- Methods for assessing changes in soil carbon - Understanding of plant growth processes - Climatology and weather modelling - Land cover mapping and change detection - Assessment of forest biomass
Expressions of interest including academic transcript, resume, cover letter and three academic references should be sent in soft copy to [email protected] and in hardcopy to the Clinton Foundation, P.O.Box 2011-00100, Argwings Kodhek Rd, Nairobi by COB 23 February 2015.
The applications will initially be screened for course eligibility by a team of experts from the respective institutions. Qualifying candidates will be invited for interviews.
