This short animation accompanies the 2nd edition of the “Climate Risk and Vulnerability Handbook for Southern Africa” which presents the latest available scientific knowledge on the nature of climate change and its implications for the region. The handbook is an important guide for climate and development practitioners, students, researchers, and policy-makers.
The breakfast meeting was the culmination of a three-day visit by FRACTAL members, which included a one-day training on climate science and the impacts of climate change on water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) in Lusaka, and a learning lab.
Climate modelling is a key tool in tackling the effects of climate change. Future Climate for Africa (FCFA) is a research programme that aims to generate fundamentally new climate science, and to ensure that this new science has an impact on human development across Africa. Dr Neil Hart presents a begginers’ guide, based on UMFULA’s work.
UMFULA’s principal investigator, Declan Conway reflects on a field trip in Malawi and the work the project plans to do.
