MUCCRI was also tasked to assist the UCCCN Steering Committee to formalize the Network as well as support them in meeting their objectives. This Network comprises of individuals commited to enhancing communal adaptation, mitigation and resilience to climate change impacts. These individuals include farmers, local government officials, students, businessmen/women, Community-based Organisations etc.
