Africa Talks Climate

Africa Talks Climate (ATC) was a major research and communications project undertaken by the BBC World Service Trust (as BBC Media Action was called before rebranding) and funded by the British Council in 2009-10.

The major objective of ATC was to identify ways to engage, inform and empower Africans in local, national and international conversations about climate change. Fieldwork was conducted in ten countries in 2009: DR Congo, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Senegal, South Africa, Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda.

ATC was intended to inform the development of local and regional climate change communications strategies, and to offer practical guidance of how media and communication can be used to support Africa's response to climate change.
