Kulima supports drafting of Climate Change Plan of Action for the Health Sector in Mozambique

workshop presentation-MaputoDr Katharine Vincent and Ms Tracy Cull have been working with the Ministerio da Saude (Ministry of Health) to finalise a Climate Change Plan of Action for the Health Sector in Mozambique. The plan builds on a recent workshop attended by national and provincial level health representatives to identify actions and priority activities for the five year period from 2015-2019. That workshop was informed by a report summarising recommendations from two sources: a World Bank report into health sector priorities in Mozambique; and an earlier report resulting from CDKN-funded research undertaken by Kulima, in collaboration with the Universidade Eduardo Mondlane and CSIR, into climate change, health, agriculture and disasters in the country.

UNEP Adaptation Gap Report released with inputs from Kulima director

Adaptation Gap FlyerAt COP20 in Lima. Peru, the United Nations Environment Programme will today release the Adaptation Gap Report. The report focuses on finance, technology and knowledge gaps in developing countries that need to be addressed in order to enable effective adaptation. By releasing the report under the auspices of the UNFCCC, the intention is to support ongoing negotiations on adaptation aspects of the 2015 agreement, discussions on defining a global goal for adaptation, aspects of loss and damage, and the National Adaptation Plan process. Dr Katharine Vincent was a contributing author to chapter 4 on technology gaps, and reviewed various chapters in earlier drafts.
