ClimateConscious Shorts

While working with different communities in eastern and southern Africa ResourceAfrica UK produced a number of short documentaries depicting the local perspective on climate change.

These short films are part of a wider initiative under the ClimateConscious Programme to raise awareness on the climate change challange.

Working with partner organisations ResourceAfrica UK aims to bring the local perspectives to national and international forums, as well as share international perpectives with local communities, thereby closing the knowledge gap.
