Assessing community responses to climate change and possible impacts to biodiversity

August 14, 2018

Over the past 3 years the Africa Biodiversity Collaborative Group (ABCG), a collaboration between 7 of the largest conservation NGO’s in Africa has explored how human communities are being impacted by changes in climate, how they are responding, and how their responses impact biodiversity. ABCG members and partners conducted over 600 interviews across 21 different sites in sub-Saharan Africa with communities engaged in farming, fishing and pastoralism.

This workshop presented key findings, including an analysis of the survey data collected, historic climate analyses for the various sites, and projections of how and where communities might respond in the future, and discussed impediments to adaptation of effective strategies.
