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, rainfall seasons are shifting and dry spells are more common. With increased flood and drought risks, 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. We focus on supporting municipalities to consider climate change in disaster planning, embedding climate change literacy into all our projects and on support for small-scale farmers through ‘climate-appropriate’ practices and networking.
