The much anticipated radio series on climate change has officially been launched on the air-waves as from Monday 30 July 2018.
The radio show airs every Monday between 7 and 8 p.m. and runs until September 24, 2018. It is broadcast in Oshiwambo, one of Namibia’s local languages, which is commonly spoken in the Omusati region in northern Namibia where ASSAR conducts its research.
The show is a live discussion broadcast from capital city Windhoek that reaches listeners in northern Namibia, an area already feeling the effects of climate change. In recent years this region has started to experience extreme weather events, like droughts and floods, more often than in the past. Subsequent shows will discuss topics including the enablers of climate adaptation in Namibia, drought management, new agricultural practices to help deal with climate change and more. Scheduled guests include officials from the Ministry of Agriculture, Water and Forestry, the Office of the Prime Minister as well as some of the ASSAR researchers.
Listeners are invited to call in and air their views. Please tune in and be part of the discussion.
