This was a one-day public dialogue that focused on climate change, wildlife and pastoral communities. It involved local communities, researchers, young scientists, policy makers and practitioners. The dialogue provided an opportunity for researchers to share with wildlife and pastoral communities and other key stakeholders on the impacts of climate change in the arid and semi-arid zone and ways of addressing the challenges. During the dialogue, there were “eye witnesses” from such communities who provided their perspectives on climate change related impacts and how such communities are responding to such challenges. A total of 120 participants attended the dialogue from within the Monduli District.
