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).
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. This feature story is on Botswana and how that country is expected to cross the critical temperature threshold in a decade.
This series published in the Namibian newspaper of 26 April and can can be read here .
