Assessing Climate Change awareness in Namibia.
On 26 July at 18:00 the Gobabeb Training and Research Centre and the Scientific Society Swakopmund invite the public to the presentation in the Museum Lecture Hall. The presentation is focused on Climate Change awareness in Namibia. The entrance is free, donations are welcome.
Climate change is a complex, multi-disciplinary, global concern. Countries around the world are educating their public on climate change causes and impacts to build national resilience and mitigation through personal action and changes of behaviour. A group of twelve Namibian graduates from around the country conducted a study on climate change awareness in Namibia.
The survey was administered for two months (May and June 2022) across eight towns in Namibia: Walvis Bay, Windhoek, Okahandja, Gobabis, Oniipa, Oshakati, Eenhana and Katima Mulilo. The data will help to assess awareness and understanding of climate change by the general public and leaders in Namibia and provide recommendations to policy makers for future initiatives.
The study participants will be presenting their preliminary results to the public in Swakopmund on the 26th July and in Windhoek on the 28th of July 2022. A final presentation will be held in Windhoek in September to formally inform the relevant policy makers and interested parties of the study findings.
