Evidence for Development has started work on HyCx, a new project which extends the HyCRISTAL programme of work, with the Walker institute, partners from Gulu University and stakeholders including farmers from Mukono district, Climate Action Network-Uganda (CAN-U) and the Uganda National Meteorological Agency.
The HyCx project will strengthen capability within Uganda to take forward the approaches to climate change mitigation and adaptation which have been developed through HyCRISTAL.
Our activities within this project involve training and capacity development, which will be delivered remotely via the Walker Academy distance learning platform. The online materials will include Use Case workshops focusing on extensions to the IDAPS platform, and workshops designed for existing household economy practitioners so they can lead future training in their own institutions.
Offering this training remotely and online has always been the intention, but the COVID-19 pandemic has led to accelerated development of these materials, and will enable us to offer this development opportunity to a larger groups of people both within this project and in the future.
