FACT SHEET ON NATIONAL CLIMATE CHANGE POLICY CASE STUDY OF OTUKE DISTRICT

Climate change is a global challenge that requires a concerted effort by all nations. Climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing humanity in the century, as the Earth’s near-surface temperatures continue to rise. Climate change is likely to disrupt the Earth’s ecological systems and has serious negative consequences on agricultural production and productivity, forests, water supply, health systems and overall human development. As temperatures throughout East Africa rise, precipitation is expected to increase, along with the frequency and intensity of droughts, floods, heatwaves and landslides. Scientists predict that the rate of climate change will be more rapid than previously expected. The impact of climate change at national and district level include; food insecurity, prolonged drought, flash flood, increased house-hold poverty due to failed crops, the encroachment of natural resources (Wetlands, forests) and gender-based violence.
