Stories of climate change

Read some stories here on people's experiences of climate change and how it has impacted their livelihoods and their day-to-day realities. Thoughts are also shared as to what communities and governments can do to help us adapt to these changes. Many of these testimonials come from the Pan-African climate change hearings which were held on the 5th and 6th of October 2009 which was organised and hosted jointly by the Environmental Monitoring Group and Oxfam.
