UNESCO to launch Be-Resilient Project
Climate change impacts are being observed across the Southern African region, with water-related hazards causing massive flooding, landslides and severe droughts, affecting natural resources and posing a threat to human security. While climate change is driven by global processes, the solutions to offset the negative effects of climate risks are particularly dependent on local conditions. UNESCO Biosphere Reserves (BRs) have the potential to become global observatories for climatIe change adaptation and mitigation.
Join the UNESCO Regional Office for Southern Africa for the kick-off meeting for the Be-Resilient Project. The project will engage a set of established and proposed Biosphere Reserves in the region to pilot effective pathways towards climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction.
