Ugandan Head of Climate Change Department Urges Legislative Action

Chebet Maikut, the head of the Climate Change Department in the Ministry of Water and Environment has urged government to develop a legal instrument to guide national response to climate variability.

Apart from guiding national efforts to mitigate and adapt to impact of climate change, Maikut said “Such a law should also spell out punitive measures to be used against Ugandans engaged in activities that fuel climate variability.”

Maikut was addressing, law makers of the Parliamentary forum on Climate Change (PFCC), who were bidding farewell to the outgoing members of the forum at Imperial Royale Hotel Kampala.
