East Africa Validates Strategy to Tackle Climate Change
March 15, 2016
Eight African countries have validated a strategy aimed at addressing human-induced climate change in the region which has been hit hard by vagaries of global warming, according to the Inter-Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD).
The organization noted on Monday that the strategy, also known as IRCCS, aimed to support member states in their efforts to follow low-carbon climate resilient sustainable development as well as identify and prioritize the major climate challenges and opportunities in the region and strategic areas of interventions.
Director of IGAD Climate Prediction and Applications Centre Gulied Artan said validation is just in time when all nations in general and developed country parties in particular have adopted an ambitious agreement dubbed the "Paris Agreement" to limit the global warming below 2°C.
