Climate Change in Local Government Fisheries and Agricultural Plans


Climate change adaptation has been included in local government fisheries, agriculture and natural resources investment programs in Mukono District, Uganda as a direct result of Walker activities. Mukono has also established a District Climate Change Response Coordination Desk. These actions will support farmers and fisheries to adapt to climate change impacts, for example by providing fruit and other tree seedlings to farming communities to diversify income sources and support ecosystem service provision, such as water and nutrient cycling in the soil.

These activities are part of ongoing work Walker has been involved in on the HyCRISTAL project to increase awareness of climate change and variability and the need to address these challenges in local communities with district political and technical leaders.
