Training course dates have just been announced for the USAID-funded project on Climate Risk and Vulnerability in Southern Africa, implemented by CSIR and Kulima.  The project aims to build the capacity of decision-makers across the SADC region to use weather and climate information in their decision-making.  Customised training courses are being developed, reflecting needs assessment visits undertaken in Mozambique, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe.  The first training course will take place in Maputo from 12-14 September, the second one will take place in Lusaka from 19-21 September, the third will take place in Harare from 25-27 September, and the fourth one will take place in Windhoek from 9-11 October.
