In 2018, during the 9th International Workshop on Sand and Dust Storms held in La Laguna (Tenerife), the SDS-WAS NAMEE Regional Center (Sand and Dust Storm Warning Advisory and Assessment System for Northern Africa, Middle East and Europe) was asked to organize a Training Workshop on mineral airborne dust forecast and observational products aimed to western and northern African countries.

To satisfy this request, AEMET organised this Training Workshop on Sand and Dust Storms in Weast and Northern Africa that was held in Dakar, Senegal from 9th to 11th December 2019 in collaboration with the WMO (world Meteorological Organitzation), BSC-CNS (Barcelona Supercomputing Center), EUMETSAT (European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites) and CSIC (Spanish National Research Council).
