Adaptation to Climate Change by Mphunga Villagers

The Malawian Red Cross Society and the Metrological Service recently worked in Mphunga, a community in Malawi. They discussed the facts about climate change and the need for adaptation. The effects of climate change have been increasing and rural areas of Africa are among the most vulnerable. As a result the villages decided to take action!
