Tailored opportunities: Call for abstracts: Strengthening the Capacity of African Countries to handle the Challenges of a Changing Environment, Nairobi, Kenya

What?

It is widely known that Africa is one of the most vulnerable continents to climate change. As the Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) produced by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has shown, climate change is expected to have widespread impacts on African societies,  and Africans’ interaction with the natural environment. There are also signs that the impacts of climate change are already being felt, not only in terms of increases in temperature, but also in respect of agriculture (with lower crop yields) and the availability of water resources, among others. The links between climate change and the incidence of diseases  – such as malaria – are also becoming clearer.

It is against this background that the Symposium “3rd SYMPOSIUM ON CLIMATE CHANGE ADAPTATION IN AFRICA”  is beingorganised  by the University of Nairobi (Kenya), Manchester Metropolitan University (UK),  the Research and Transfer Centre “Sustainable Development and Climate Change Management” of the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (Germany) and the International Climate Change Information and Research Programme (ICCIRP).

Who?

Academicians, researchers, practitioners with research relevant to the theme of the symposium.

When?
