Alumni Thought Leadership Webinar presented by Dr Cliff Dlamini and Dr Jako Volschenk

Facilitated by the USB Alumni Botswana Chapter


  via Livestream   Tuesday, 7 September 2021

Extreme weather across the globe indicates that global climate is changing. We have limited time to change this and yet companies, governments, countries and trade blocks pull in different directions. Why is it that we find it so hard to come to an agreement and what does this mean for Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA)?

Join Dr Cliff Dlamini, Executive Director of the Centre for Coordination of Agricultural Research and Development for Southern Africa (CCARDESA), and Dr Jako Volschenk, Senior Lecturer in Strategy and Sustainability as they talk about the challenges in finding common ground in climate negotiations.


Date:          Tuesday, 7 September 2021

Time:        13:00 – 14:30 (CAT | GMT+2)

Enquiries:        Lizelle Kannemeyer | [email protected]
