The African Climate & Development Initiative (ACDI), based at the University of Cape Town (UCT), working together with the University of Namibia (UNAM) and University of Botswana (UB), is producing a series of journalistic articles which address key research findings relating to how semi-arid regions in southern Africa should respond to the threat of a changing climate. 

This series is part of the outputs from a collaborative research project: Adaptation at Scale in Semi-Arid Regions (ASSAR). This 5-year (2014-2018) project focuses on climate change adaptation in the Omusati Region in Namibia as well as other countries in Africa and South Asia (see http://www.assar.uct.ac.za). In Namibia, this project is being implemented by UNAM, UCT and OXFAM GB in collaboration with the Desert Research Foundation of Namibia.

These stories have been produced by South African science writer and author Leonie Joubert, and the objective of this series is to inform policymakers with evidence-based ideas that address key development concerns across the region, in the context of climate change.

The first series on water governance was published in the Namibian newspaper and can can be read here.
