Uganda hosts Climate Change week: commits to improve air quality through monitoring Short-lived Climate Pollutants (SLCP)

Uganda was privileged to host the Climate Change Week from September 20-26, 2021. The Climate Change Week is an annual event that brings together leading climate professionals and communities to discuss practical solutions to climate change. It is a platform for partner states and entities to explore climate challenges and opportunities and showcase ambitious solutions to achieve the Paris Agreement temperature goals.

The phenomenon refers to a variation in the average weather conditions over a long period of time. Climate change may be caused by both natural and human (anthropogenic) factors including, deforestation, pollution, greenhouse gases that are released from burning fossil fuels, degradation of ecosystems such as wetlands etc.
