The Horn of Africa has for decades been one of the continent’s fastest changing and most turbulent regions. It is also still a disproportionately rural region, with tens of millions of subsistence farmers and pastoralists who have extensive experience with weathering meteorological variability but who, for a host of reasons, are nonetheless among the world’s most vulnerable populations in the face of climatic upheaval. This panel, featuring some of the region’s leading experts on sustainable development, took stock of ongoing efforts to adapt to intensifying climatic changes and the parallel challenges of strengthening sustainable livelihoods in remote rural areas and the Horn’s rapidly growing cities.
This event is part of a new webinar series through which the Center on Global Energy Policy seeks to foreground the heterogeneity of perspectives found around the continent on what climate means in different African contexts and how more than one billion Africans are already living with extraordinary climatological variability and constraints on the use of natural resources.
