Exploring the role of social learning in addressing climate uncertainties in district planning in Uganda
Significant uncertainties around future climate change challenge the implementation of policies and programmes. Process-driven approaches, such as social learning, may offer a more flexible
approach to tackling the particular challenges of climate uncertainties such as uncertain evidence and long timeframes. This report explores how such processes have helped address climate
uncertainties in Uganda through the work of the Africa Climate Change Resilience Alliance.
Uncertainty about the speed and impacts of climate change makes it difficult to design and implement policies that are resilient to long-term climate shocks and stresses. Institutional processes based on social learning offer a flexible approach that can help to address uncertainty and complexity, and enable effective climate responses.
