The key note speaker for the event was the Honourable Minister of Water and Environment. Representatives from the central and local governments, business community, civil society, academia and development partners are expected to attend will respond to the findings.

The Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN) has been supporting the Government of Uganda to conduct a study on the Economic Impact of Climate Change and the study was concluded in October 2015. The study has already generated a high level interest in Uganda and elsewhere, and without further investment in a phase of outreach/communications, there is a risk that the significant investment made in the study will not achieve as great an impact.  CDKN is supporting outreach activities to communicate the findings of the study which include, among others, a high-level national outreach event. The outreach involves policy-orientated discussions about the study results, to spread the messages wider in society and how the Government of Uganda can use the results to invest in climate compatible development.
