Training Workshop on Resilient Livelihoods in Kampala 22nd to 25th February 2017


Natural disasters and climate change have exposed populations to greater social, environmental, and economic vulnerability that have threatened their livelihoods and the sustainable achievement of development goals. To address these challenges Maarifa Consult Ltd has organized a training workshop in Kampala, Uganda, aimed at building the capacity of development workers through Resilient Livelihoods Training. The knowledge and skills acquired will help development workers to implement initiatives that will help the most vulnerable people achieve nutrition and food security and the freedom from hunger — one of the most basic human rights and also help to reduce risks associated with climate change and natural hazards and provides them with opportunities to make their communities more resilient.
