Lived Experiences: Adaptation to Climate Change in Gogonyo Sub-County, Palisa District, Uganda

"Climate change has become a local phenomenon just as it is global. The magnitude of climate variability is now being felt at almost all scales and in all regions with extreme events such as drought, excessive rainfall, cold and heat waves as well as dry spells affecting much of rural Africa, Uganda inclusive. Climate change adaptation has now become indispensable due to the increasing vulnerability of rural populations to the effects. Communities which are remotely located in countries such as Uganda, have limited access to social services, dependent on natural resources for their livelihoods and may have limited opportunity to influence the policies that affect their lives are, therefore, likely to be more vulnerable,"
