Targeting Mental Models of Climate Change Risk to facilitate Climate Action


Within the MECCA project (Targeting Mental Models of Climate Change Risk to facilitate Climate Action) we have several important achievements that we would like to share.

With the help of LVFO, NaFIRRI , TAFIRI and KMFRI, we surveyed community members in Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania in June 2021 (for more info see: here)

We measured the risk perceptions among 2,000 community members in Lagos and 750 community members in East Africa in August and July 2022 and assessed mental models on climate change among 1200 Lagos and East Africa community members and policy-makers in September 2022 (for more info see: here).

In the next few months, we will have a workshop to present the findings of the project.
