Details

Our climate is changing rapidly and communities all over the world are feeling the impact. Climate change impacts affect social and ecological systems in complex and broad-ranging across regions, groups and sectors. Many of these impacts have cascading negative effects on social, economic and health outcomes of communities especially in food and livelihood security. In order to respond to climate change, more vigorous actions are required to mitigate emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) and to adapt to unavoidable consequences that are increasing vulnerability around the world. While Africa has contributed the least to climate change, it’s the hardest hit by its effects. Communities in Africa consequently need to learn to cope with the effects of climate change including warmer temperatures, drier soils, floods, droughts and other changes in weather extremes. At different governance levels and scales, appropriate responses are needed to mitigate and build adaptive community capacity and therefore resilience against effects of climate change.

This training places local sustainability, its development challenges and local vulnerabilities in the context of climate changes at regional and global levels in order to understand their linkages. And develop local strategies that support poverty reduction, build community resiliency while supporting and preserving biodiversity.
