Leigh Phillips here, editor with ICT Update Magazine, (http://ictupdate.cta.int), to announce a) the latest issue has just been published and b) we’ve completely redesigned our website.
This edition’s theme is ‘Coping with climate change’. Developing countries will suffer far more from the impacts of global warming than the big polluters in Europe and North America. Soil erosion and desertification will affect ACP countries far more than Europe and North America. Some small island states in the South Pacific and the Indian Ocean could be entirely engulfed by the seas. Such dire threats seem overwhelming and tackling them impossible. The scale of the big-picture hazards often obscure practical strategies of mitigating and adapting that local communities, NGOs and researchers in developing countries are engaged in. In this issue of ICT Update, we look at a few of such pioneering activities in ACP countries.
