Event summary: The first virtual workshop in the series - From Climate Change Adaptation to Climate Resilience - Identifying the missing links.

A virtual workshop organized by the Nordic Africa Institute in collaboration with researchers from Kenyatta University, Kenya, and the University of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. This workshop is the first among a series of workshops planned under the theme – From Climate Change Adaptation to Climate Resilience – Identifying the missing links.

The workshop is part of research networking activities supported by funding from the Swedish Research Council. The workshop aims to bring together relevant stakeholders in the region to discuss the challenges of the poor and vulnerable communities – the smallholder farmers and the urban marginalized poor – in attaining climate resilience.

Climate change impacts are critical in vulnerable societies in Africa mainly because a climate crisis within no time translates into a humanitarian crisis through acute food shortage and lack of access to safe and clean water. This workshop aims to understand the current state of climate change adaptation policies and practices among vulnerable communities – the smallholder farmers and the urban marginalized poor – in Kenya and Tanzania.

Note! This is a closed workshop, by invitation only. If you are interested in participating, please email Camilla Leetmaa, Event and Communications Administrator.
