Research Briefing. Africa Talks Climate: Senegal

Abstract

In Senegal, research into public understanding of climate change found that though Senegalese know that their environment is changing, they do not know why. People in Senegal are aware of changes in weather patterns, especially when this leads to food and water shortages, but they do not understand climate change as a concept. Many feel unable to adapt to their changing environment, and will probably migrate to towns and cities when living off the land becomes too difficult.
