Investigating the impact of climate change and measures that can be taken to adapt to it and mitigate its effects

Catherine Namwezi

Rural transformer in Kibaale District, W. Uganda

slide2

UN PREDICTIONS THAT CAME TRUE

Temperatures will increase, rain fall will vary

The dessert is increasing south word

slide3

UN prediction -Droughts increased-

Soil desertification will increase

slide4

“There’s only 20cm of soil left between us and extinction”

The UN general secretary.

slide10

Effects of high temperatures and little rainfall

Increased evaporation leading to:

slide11

Effects

Soil desertification

Loss in pastoral grounds

Poor crop yields

slide12

Conclusion

  • Temperatures have increased
  • Annual Rainfall has decreased
  • More frequent droughts
  • Soil degradation has occurred
  • The desert is moving southwards
  • Less agricultural productivity
  • Poor nutrition and increased diseases
slide16

General findings

  • Increased temperatures
  • Decreased rainfall
  • Improved soil quality
  • Productive farming methods
  • Better standards of living
slide21

Better methods of farming

The two generation approach method. All schools have the last week of school dedicated to teaching kids about climate change and the ways to mitigate and adopt to the effects of climate change. At the end of the week, all parents of school going kids are then expected to come in school and their kids then facilitate to them what they learned in the last week of school. After that, both the parents and the kids are then expected to go back home and put into practice what they have been taught at school. Areas of focus included, better methods of farming, organic farming, pest control etc

Remarks from an Interview with Mr. Peter Schuurs

“Even when Sudan is planning on having Sun drop projects, Something like Sun drop farms is enormously capital intensive, requiring millions of dollars to set-up even just a couple of hectares. The big advantage that South Sudan has going for it compared to almost any other country in the world is that it has large tracts of basically unoccupied land that has relatively fertile soils and receives reliable & abundant rainfall each year – these are its competitive advantages, and this flows through to the type of farming system we use which actually has the capacity to sequester carbon back into the soil through its ability to improve soil organic matter levels over time”

slide31

Some of the other results

Population increase in general . But there was a decrease in the Sudan and increase in the south
