Webinar for journalists: Communicating climate change's impact on agriculture and food in sub-Saharan Africa

African countries are taking ambitious action towards sustainably resolving the climate crisis. This was evident at COP24, where the rulebook for the Paris Agreement was agreed upon by the world’s climate negotiators. The rulebook addresses critical issues for the continent, including greenhouse gas emissions reporting and climate finance. This webinar will discuss the implications global climate talks have for African countries facing prolonged drought, heat waves, sea level rise and unpredictable rainfall, and help journalists to better understand how to report on these issues.
