We were so sorry to hear of Lazreg’s death and we want to express our most sincere sympathies to his family.
Lazreg Benaichata, Professor at the University Ibn Khaldoun de Tiaret in Algeria, was in Italy several times and visited our Institute of BioEconomy (ex Institute of Biometeorology) in Rome and Florence. He collaborated with us on scientific projects and served as valued trainer to a couple of courses we organized at the WMO-RTC in Italy. He promoted the Memorandum of Understanding between our Research Institute and the University of Tiaret, that he signed on 21 September 2017 in Florence on behalf of his University Rector, with the purpose to continue scientific collaboration on common research topics. With a strong background on mathematics and statistics applied to climatology, he was an open mind, keen to learn more on how to evaluate climate impacts on agriculture in African Countries, and always open to share his deep knowledge.
We remember him as a nice, friendly, esteemed man, proud of his family and, as CNR-IBE and WMO-RTC Italy, we present our condolence and esteem to the family.
