  • Adapting to climate change in East Africa: a strategic approach

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Saturday 1 January 2005
    Objective: 
    Approach: 

    This paper provides an overview of the likely impacts of climate change in three least developed countries in East Africa: Sudan, Tanzania, and Uganda. In the coming decades, climate change is likely to alter temperatures and distribution of rainfall, contribute to sea-level rise and increase the frequency and intensity of extreme weather events in East Africa.

  • Making the case for eco-system based adaptation

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Thursday 1 January 2015
    Objective: 
    Approach: 

    This report highlights the experience of three pioneering countries -  Nepal, Peru and Uganda - where governments and civil society have joined hands, supported by the German Government’s International Climate Initiative, and worked with implementing partners UNDP, UNEP and IUCN, in piloting new approaches through the Mountain EbA Programme.

    It suggests that the Mountain EbA programme has also facilitated a number of key interventions at the global scale, and has generated new evidence on the cost-effectiveness of ecosystem-based adaptation options.

    This report documents human rights abuses at Mount Elgon National Park in east Uganda, where a Dutch foundation plants trees for the purpose of carbon offsetting.

  • Ex-post evaluation of the additionality of Clean Development Mechanism afforestation projects in Tanzania, Uganda and Moldova

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Saturday 1 February 2014
    Objective: 

    This study presents findings from comparative research which aimed to investigate the additionality claims of Clean Development Mechanisam (CDM) afforestation projects in Tanzania, Uganda and Moldova. An “ex-post comparative baseline approach” is used to account for how project financing and background economic conditions evolve over a CDM project’s implementation and crediting periods. The paper concludes that the projects in Uganda and Moldova are very likely to be fully additional while only approximately one-quarter of carbon credits resulting from the Tanzania project are genuine.

  • Managing Africa’s water in a changing climate

    Objective: 
    Approach: 

    Nearly one-third of all water-related disasters occur in Africa. The second issue of Joto Afrika considers the relationship between climate change, the greater incidence of extreme weather events, such as drought and flooding, and the increasing scarcity of water on the African continent. The briefing presents the following six articles and case studies, which reflect on experiences from different countries and regions:

  • Pushing the agenda for climate change in East Africa

    Type: 
    Publication

    Objective: 
    Approach: 

    Climate change is one of the most serious development challenges facing humanity. Many of Africa’s poorest countries, which have contributed least to global warming, are amongst the most vulnerable to climate change. While industrialised countries dedicate resources to protect themselves, the impacts of climate change in Africa continue to be ignored.Research
    from the International Institute for Environment and Development, UK, focuses
    on the anticipated impacts of climate change in three East African Least
    Developed Countries (LDCs): Sudan, Tanzania and
