Status of and response to Climate Change in Southern Africa
Southern Africa is experiencing more droughts and floods; reduced rainfall seasons; and rising temperatures. The weather extremes adversely affect economic sectors, landscapes and people. In addition, increased climate uncertainty has rendered traditional coping strategies inadequate and raised the need to infuse new science based knowledge. Unfortunately, some of the initiatives have been uncoordinated and lessons learnt from them not adequately documented and shared. The objective of this Study was therefore to review and document climate change experiences in Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
