A team from the Desert Research Foundation of Namibia, the University of Namibia and Reos Partners were invited to translate climate knowledge into action. Here, they describe how they rose to the challenge - and trained Namibian Parliamentarians on the implications of 1.5 degrees of global warming. [more...]
It is time to address capacity gaps in water users associations in Namibia and make the most of their potential to support adaptation to climate change – say Salma Hegga, Irene Kunamwene and Gina Ziervogel of the University of Cape Town. This is one of a series of blogs to frame the Africa anchoring event of the Climate Adaptation Summit, January 2021. [more...]
A CDKN-supported project in Namibia has produced a graphic harvest to highlight the implications of the latest research findings on what global warming of 1.5°C means for Namibia, a climate change hotspot and an already very dry, hot and water-stressed country. [more...]
Lucia Scodanibbio describes CDKN's recent efforts to learn with its partners in Namibia about effective 'climate knowledge brokering', a concept explained further in this blog. With contributions from Margaret Angula, Amanda April, Emma Baker, Ester Nangolo, Bernadette Shalumbu and Cecil Togarepi. [more...]
A new animation from a CDKN-funded project in Namibia highlights the impacts of 2°C global warming on the country's vulnerable sectors, including agriculture, health and the economy, and recommends urgent adaptation action. [more]…
The Oshana Region of Namibia has been hard-hit by climate change, especially droughts, which have drastically disrupted farming practices and livelihoods. This film explores the experiences of community members in adapting to the changing climate. [more]…

The book synthesises the ESPA programme's compelling evidence on ecosystems and wellbeing. It addresses the evolving framings and contexts of ecosystem services for poverty alleviation, reviews the impacts of ongoing drivers of change and presents new ways to achieve sustainable wellbeing, equity, diversity, and resilience.
The 1.5°C global warming threshold could be breached as early as the next decade. For semi-arid African countries, a 1.5°C increase in global temperature will have severe local impacts, affecting water, agriculture, health, and other vulnerable sectors.
