MUCCRI engages in packaging, communicating, and disseminating Climate Change information, knowledge products, and innovations to the wider public. A prime feature in our training and research activities is to provide domestic and regional policy makers with the necessary scientific support, technology, and guidance in adapting to and mitigating the impacts of Climate Change.
To prepare technical staff from central and local governments, policy and decision makers, practitioners and private sector professionals around the country adapt to the growing risks caused by a changing Climate, MUCCRI trains and equips these professionals and experts with knowledge and understanding of Climate Change that they can apply in many aspects of their lives. The courses usually have intensive short period trainings, field trips, and sites tours to locations in the country that provide the best local examples of either mitigation or adaptation actions combating the impacts of Climate Change.
Makerere University Centre for Climate Change Research and Innovations (MUCCRI) together with support from the USAID/Uganda Education and Research to Improve Climate Change Adaptation Activity (ERICCA), conducted a 5-day short course on Climate Change and Natural Resources Management from 10 – 14th April 2017. The overall objective of the course was that climate change considerations are effectively integrated into natural resources management policy, programmes, projects and other community-based climate change response actions.
