Communication and awareness
Despite the effects of climate change being increasingly tangible for people in many parts of the world, there is a strong need for creating greater awareness of the full implications and direct and indirect impacts of a changing climate in both rural and urban areas. Developing efficient knowledge systems that reach out and engage can have a profound implication for speeding up the process of adapting our societies to become more low-carbon and resilient, through providing a better basis as well as support for decision-making. Below you will find related publications, partners, CTCN technical assistance, technologies and other information for exploring this topic further.

The Kyrgyz Republic is a land locked and lower-middle-income country of 6,3 million population endowed with natural resources including minerals, glaciers, arable land, forestry and pastures. The country is the third most vulnerable to climate change impacts in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, due to its dependency on and sensitivity of agricultural systems.

The Kingdom of Eswatini is a landlocked country between South Africa and People’s Republic of Mozambique. The country faces numerous challenges such as poverty, chronic food insecurity, HIV/AIDS and climate-related disasters that include droughts, storms and floods and invasive plant and diseases. According to Eswatini's Third National Communication to the UNFCCC, between 1961 and 2010 there is an upward trend in mean annual temperature across the different parts of the country and a decrease in seasonal rainfall and an increase in frequencies of dry spells.

Saint Lucia is a Small Island Development State (SIDS), which is highly at risk from climate change, mainly due to its location along the North Atlantic hurricane corridor, its small surface area, geographic location and its economic reliance on tourism and agriculture, which are climate-sensitive factors. The country’s limited capacity to reconstruct and reactivate its economy after climate-related shocks renders it highly vulnerable. Because of its small geographic size and dependence on natural resources any extreme weather event can have national implications.

Vanuatu is a small island country in the Pacific which depends almost entirely on imported fossil fuel for its energy and transport needs. The continuous reliance on these fossil fuels is not only unsustainable for Vanuatu but goes against Vanuatu’s national climate change mitigation ambition as reflected in its Nationally Determined Contributions, its Climate Change and Disaster Risk Reduction Policy, its National Energy Roadmap and Vanuatu’s Sustainable Development Plan.
