Rising Above Climate Change


Rising Above Climate Change
– Sharing the Uganda NAPA experience

Not only the climate changes are real. Also the impact on water resources, food security and health, sectors essential to the human survival, is real and happening.
This poses a major challenge for sustainability of life, ecosystems, livelihoods and development of national economies also in Uganda.

Adaptation to the adverse effects of climate change is vital to reduce the impacts of today and increase resilience to future impacts. The question is how.

This film will bring you closer to the experiences, challenges and solutions found in four pilot projects in different ecosystems in Uganda, implemented by The National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA) in Uganda
