A Workshop on Capacity Building on Climate Change and Adaptation Strategies in Somaliland, the workshop was organized by the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change with Collaboration UNDP which supported GCF.

Climate change is one of the most impactful environmental issues in Somaliland, resulting in increasingly severe and prolonged periods of drought as well as flooding.  This has resulted in widespread water scarcity, food insecurity, environmental degradation, and displacement for thousands of people.

This workshop aims to build the capacities of representatives from the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change and other key line ministries, as well as from non-government and civil society organizations, academia, and the private sector to better understand the complexities of climate change and effective strategies for adaptation to their impacts.
