CLIMATE CHANGE ADAPTATION
The world’s sustainable development goal number 13 aims at taking appropriate actions to combat climate change and its impacts. Climate change and variability affects every facet of a country’s economy, its socio-economic wellbeing and a major precursor/driver for conflicts related to limited/access to natural resources.
How prepared are African states to face the negative impacts imparted by climate change and variability?
We have already witnessed Climate changes through droughts, floods, varying temperatures and rainfalls and sea level rise.
Climate change is a complex problem; the definition of the problem being very difficult and its solution is one that has everyone chasing for an answer. VISO applies proactive and holistic approaches to combat the challenges presented by these changes.
We develop climate change information management system and early warning systems to promote policy advocacy, implementation to improve socio-economic wellbeing of communities in the region.
Short and long term goals on Climate adaptation
Improve knowledge on climate change /trends in Uganda while taking in consideration the regional context.
Improve community access to information on climate change for behaviour change and environmental protection through appropriate climate information services (CIS) to households, entities and the general public.
Model future climate projections in the different regions of Uganda to support evidence for future forecast and adaptation strategies to the changes.
