Climate Change Stakeholder Workshop in Tanzania
Expertise and Moderation
The study on the economic impact of climate change in the East African Community, carried out by Global21 between June 2008 and June 2009, has been submitted to all climate change stakeholders in the region.
In a participative workshop, held in Arusha/Tanzania on 29th of July 2009, the stakeholders present their comments on the study findings and define in cooperation with international experts policy options for a regional approach regarding climate change.
The workshop aims in particular at:
- Raising awareness on key economic impacts of climate change on East African Community Partner States.
- Providing a platform to various stakeholders from the EAC partner states to share information and experiences regarding climate change.
- Concretizing the study findings, policy options and recommendations that will be forwarded to the decision making organs of the EAC for auxiliary action.
After discussing the study findings in a plenary session, the participants work in two separate groups on the policy options proposed by the consultants, in particular on the following topics:
- Development of a regional climate change strategy
- Regional cooperation in vulnerability assessment and adaptation at regional level
- Climate Change research
- Conflict prevention
- Institutional aspects
Based on the discussion results and outcome of the working groups, the consultants revise the draft version of the study and submit the final report (download).
Josef Seitz intervenes as key expert and moderator for the different working groups.
