Support for climate change literacy and adaptation

In Southern Africa, local climates are heating up. There is an increase in frequency and intensity of extreme rainfall events (thus also an increase in flood risk). Rainfall seasons are shifting and dry spells are more common (thus there is an increased risk of drought and reduced rainfall). Climate change requires urgent responses.

AWARD aims to reduce vulnerability to climate change and other factors by supporting collective action, informed adaptation strategies and practices and tenable institutional arrangements.
