Meet Martin Ojok, Senior Climate Change Officer at the Ministry of Water and Environment in Uganda

In my country, climate change is something we take very seriously. Uganda just like the rest of the world is facing the impacts of climate change like the continued landslides in Eastern Uganda (Bududa) and the bursting of the shore of river Nyamwamba in Kasese, where recently due to heavy rains, many people lost lives, property and livelihood.  . In response to address some of the above effects, an institution to coordinate all climate change actions both at international and national level as well as having a national policy and an act to guide in addressing climate change are some of the initiatives put in place.

Meet Aurelius C. Nkonde, Senior Climate Change Officer at the Ministry of Environment in Zambia

In my country, climate change manifests itself through increases in temperature and reduced rainfall in the last few decades, with temperatures estimated to increase at 0.6oC every ten years. The frequency of occurrence of extreme events (drought, seasonal floods and flash floods, extreme temperatures and dry spells) are increasing.  The decreased precipitations experienced in the past few years has resulted in reduced water levels in our major water bodies. This has led to the energy deficit and subsequent load shedding through rationing power usage as the country depends largely on the hydropower. In order to address the energy deficit, the Government has mobilized resources and increased expenditure to the energy sector. Other climate actions are through the broad areas of sustainable Forestry Management, Sustainable Agriculture and Renewable Energy and Energy efficiency.
