Dr Katharine Vincent and Ms Tracy Cull are in Xai Xai, Mozambique this week, to deliver a two-day climate change training course to local government officials in Gaza province. The training has been commissioned by the Africa Climate Change Resilience Alliance, as part of their second phase of programming. ACCRA is currently working in Guija district in Gaza province, and has found that, whilst there is enthusiasm for addressing climate change issues, effective engagement with the issues is severely impeded by lack of technical understanding and capacity. It is hoped that this training course will enable climate change to be more effectively considered in sub-national planning and development processes.
A blog summarising the training was posted on the ACCRA website on 20th November 2012.
