Climate change counts

This mapping study, which examines the role of higher education in contributing to climate resilient development pathways, is the first of its kind in southern Africa, and in Africa more widely. Since more holistic approaches to climate change and climate compatible development are relatively new knowledge production areas in southern African universities, this study, which brings together information from twelve southern African countries across a wide range of disciplines, is particularly valuable. The study has engaged with university professionals from a wide range of faculties – science, agriculture, law, education, humanities, architecture, engineering, and health, amongst others, to establish where and how climate compatible development research, teaching and outreach is already taking place, and where the gaps may be.
