Global climate change in Sub-Saharan Africa: The situation in Karamoja sub-region, Uganda
This document outlines the key elements of global environmental problems, especially those arising from climate change in the semi-arid conditions of Karamoja region in Uganda. Global Environmental Change Research encompasses the interlinked issues of social, economic, political and technological change; their consequences on the land surface and its water systems in the oceans and in the atmosphere; the resultant changes in the climate; and the impact of all the above on biodiversity and human well being. Africa is particularly vulnerable to global change, partly due to its location, and also because of limited capacity to adapt to such unpredictable natural occurrences. Africa has, however, a significant capacity to do global climate change research, but is not reaching its full and necessary potentials in this arena.
