Isaac Kabongo on Adaptation Challenges in East Africa


Mr. Isaac Kabongo, Executive Director of Ecological Christian Organization and Programme Fellow for Climate Action Network (CAN) Uganda, discusses adaptation challenges in East Africa. He describes how civil societies and the private sector are currently responsible for most of the adaptation initiatives in play and that the biggest challenges they face are poverty and income levels which further the need for external support. He also comments on how adaptation funding is both external and internal and on how south-south technology transfer is much easier than north-south transfer.
