The participants benefited from a wealth of technical and practical experiences from a group of presenters drawn from the NGOs, Government, private sector and academic institutions.

 

Prof. Wandiga, who is the Director of the ICCA, officiated over the opening ceremony and encouraged the participants to persist in their pursuit of environmental knowledge so as to be able to make a meaningful contribution to addressing climate change challenges.

At the end of the training, Mr. Jacob Olonde, the Director ECAS Institute thanked the participants for taking time to attend the inaugural Climate Change Master Class.
