Ugandan journalist Annah Natukunda interviews Tracy Kajumba, a climate change expert and advocate for the Africa Climate Change Resilience Alliance (ACCRA), a consortium of CARE, Save the Children, Oxfam and World Vision operating in Uganda, Ethiopia and Mozambique, about some of the challenges created by climate change in Uganda.
Uganda's climate is naturally variable and susceptible to flood and drought events with damaging socio-economic impacts. In particular, climate change is likely to mean increased food insecurity; shifts in the spread of diseases like malaria; soil erosion and land degradation; flood damage to infrastructure and settlements. The poor and vulnerable will feel these impacts the hardest.
The film is part of a series of interviews with representatives from the Least Developed Country Group ahead of the UN climate talks in Paris (COP21).
