Mzime Regina Ndebele-Murisa reflects on the African Climate Change Fellowship Program (ACCFP) at the Forum on Education, Climate Change and Capacity Building

The Forum on Education, Capacity Building, and Climate Change: A Strategy for Collective Action in Africa, convened at the White Sands Hotel in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania on June 27th to July 1st, 2010. The Forum was organized by the International START Secretariat and the Pan-African START Secretariat and hosted by the University of Dar es Salaam with support from the Open Society Institute. The purpose of the forum was to explore the role of African universities in promoting education on climate change adaptation in the areas of research, curriculum development and teacher training, as well as to examine issues of how to more fully engage civil society on adaptation through education aimed outside the university. 40 of the 45 2009/2010 ACCFP Fellows were in attendance to participate in the Forum. On the final day of the Forum, Ms. Mzime Regina Ndebele-Murisa, a 2009/2010 ACCFP Doctoral Research Fellow hosted at the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN), reflected on the African Climate Change Fellowship Program, as shown on the video below.
