Climate Change: Africa gets ready!
October 10, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
About the talk:
Africa is identified by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) as one of the region’s most vulnerable to climate variability and climate change due to multiple stresses and low adaptive capacity. Impacts in Africa include increased water stress; reduced agricultural yields and areas suitable for crop agriculture; decreased freshwater fisheries; and impacts of sea level rise. Particularly vulnerable are semi-arid and arid areas of Africa.
Speaker: Dr Bernard Barasa (Senior Lecturer in the Department of Geography, Geo-informatics and Climatic Sciences, Makerere University (Uganda)
