Somaliland sun – In order to enhance the capacity of the disaster management committees on the effects of climate change and provide early warning information, the National Environmental Research and Disasters Preparedness (NERAD) conducted a 4-day workshop for district disaster management committees of Hargeisa. The workshop focuses on climate change mitigation and early warning systems and improving participant’s disaster reporting skills to be timely and more efficient.
