Webinar: Climate Change in Eastern Africa, Challenges and Opportunities
Climate variability and change are causing devastating socio-economic impacts in all parts of the world including eastern parts of Africa. Some of the key challenges associated with attempts to integrate climate variability and change in regional development strategies include limited knowledge and multidisciplinary capacity, observation and data systems, in adequate prediction and early warning systems, inability to effectively use available products and services, lack of advocacy and climate smart policies, etc. ICPAC is launching a multidisciplinary webinar forum to promote strategic regional dialogue on the regional climate variability and change challenges.
This forum will provide opportunity to exchange of new knowledge, as well as relevant ICPAC climate products and services in support of regional climate smart initiatives and actions for sustainable development.
The first webinar will focus on the increasing knowledge and raise awareness on the state of Climate Change in the region. Under a general theme “Climate Change Challenges and Opportunities in Easter Africa”.
