The idea of Climate Champions was concieved in 2015 by the USAID/Education and Research to Improve Climate Change Adaptation (ERICCA) and Enabling Environment for Agriculture (EEA). In December 2017 during the Community-based Adaptation Learning Forum (CALF), the Champions formed an association named "Uganda Climate Change Champions Network -UCCCN" whose secretariat was to be housed at MUCCRI. 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.
