Our U.S. team are all in country today. We spent the morning meeting with representatives from the government, church, and civil society to hear reports on climate impacts and how they’re responding. Their stories and reports were startling. More than once we heard “the challenge and level of response needed is comparable to our efforts around HIV/AIDS.”
We made the beautiful drive down from Lilongwe to Blantyre in the afternoon and will spend all day tomorrow visiting some local villages to hear first hand testimony.
