ResourceAfrica UK has been active in southern and eastern Africa over the last year. Partnering with local NGOs from Namibia, Tanzania and Kenya communities in the region were engage to tell their stories through photographs. Community members were training in using a digital camera, which they used for a day or two to document their lives. In depth discussions around the pictures lead to photostories that highlight the community's livelihood challenges and opportunities and their climate change experiences and vulnerabilities.
RAUK was invited to present at the Commonwealth Climate Change Communication Conference (C5) 2010.
The presentation explains what climate change means to Africa and highlights RAUK's experience from South Africa with the Bennde Mutale Theatre Group and plans for Namibia, Tanzania and Kenya under the CCCAP.
