Dr Katharine Vincent is currently in Maputo to launch a new project on climate change, health, disasters and agriculture in Mozambique. The project, funded by CDKN, was requested by the Government of Mozambique, who are keen to fill the data gap in research around how climate change will intersect with health status to create vulnerability to disasters in agricultural communities. The steering committee comprises representatives from the Ministry of Health (MISAU), Ministry for the Coordination of Environmental Affairs (MICOA), Food Security and Nutrition Secretariat (SETSAN) and the National Disaster Management Institute (INGC). The project will run from June until December, and is being implemented in conjunction with colleagues at the CSIR and Universidade Eduardo Mondlane in Maputo.

CDKN launches “Managing Climate Extremes and Disasters: Lessons from the IPCC SREX Report” with comments from Kulima
In honour of the recent release of the IPCC’s Special Report on Managing the Risks of Extreme Events and Disasters to Advance Climate Change Adaptation (SREX), the Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN) has launched a series of reports, “Managing Climate Extremes and Disasters: Lessons from the IPCC SREX Report” covering each of the Asia, Africa and Latin American and Caribbean regions. Dr Katharine Vincent provided comments on the draft of the Africa report, which aims to pull out state-of-the-art knowledge about current and future impacts of climate extremes, and options for dealing with them, for the benefit of policy-makers, media, businesses and civil society stakeholders.
