This year SASSCAL is hosting a High-level Climate engagement in Namibia. The event is referred to as “SASSCAL CLIMATE-CHANGE DIALOGUE” and provides a unique platform that brings the scientific community, policymakers, and youth together to discuss key challenges of climate change in the country and within the region.
The Climate Dialogue will take place from the 21st to 22nd November 2023 at Mercure Hotel in Windhoek, Namibia.
