The German Embassy Windhoek co-funds the Southern Times “Climate Change Forum” on October 12, 2017 with approximately 12,400 Euro. The funds cover the travel and accommodation costs as well as the speaking fees for the participants from the region.
The forum’s objective is to sensitise communities in the Sub-Saharan region on climate change and its impacts on food security and environmental decay. It is meant to propel policy changes from government and government institutions, foster preparedness and readiness to adapt to the effects of climate change and to adopt strategies for present and future ways to deal with climate change.
Ullrich Kinne, Chargé d’Affaires at the German Embassy Windhoek, Gwen Snyders and Dignity Mare on behalf of the Southern Times Newspaper signed a funding agreement on October 2.
