Uganda

Located on the East African plateau, Uganda is situated along the equator and therefore has a mainly tropical warm climate, with two rainy seasons (March – May and September – November). As the global and national temperatures are rising, rainfall starts to change, leading to an increase of extreme weather events, such as droughts, floods and landslides. These ongoing changes of climate have severe and destructive impacts on the environment and the population. Agriculture, the most important sector in Uganda, is especially affected in terms of land/crop loss, low production and livestock diseases, leading to food insecurity.
