Call for presentations: Africa day 2018 (20 October 2018) Climate change is a theme that needs to be addressed urgently. Although its effects are felt worldwide, the African continent appears to carry the heaviest burden when it comes to adapting to climate change. To explore how climate change could be addressed in Africa, the Netherlands Association for African Studies (NVAS) organizes the NVAS Africa day 2018 entitled ‘Responding to climate change in Africa’ in collaboration with the World Wildlife Fund.
