Low-income countries particularly in tropical and sub-tropical regions are especially vulnerable to the effects of climate change, because of their existing exposure to an already fragile environment and their economic and social sensitivity to climate change. And their poverty reduces their capacity to adapt. Adaptation is crucial to limit the unavoidable impacts of climate change. This webinar focuses on increasing knowledge and raising awareness on the implications of climate change, exploring adaptation strategies in Eastern Africa.
