Postcard from Addis Ababa: When Bull Elephants Fight



May 2011


“When bull elephants fight, it’s the grass that suffers.”
A picture shows two bull elephants facing each other, one labelled ‘scientific knowledge’, the other ‘indigenous knowledge’. It didn’t look good. It was a way through which to show that Africa needs to find a way of blending these two sources of knowledge if it is to adapt successfully to a changing climate. The article also talked about the role that media could play.  This article sums up the key messages obtained from the AfricaAdapt Climate Change Symposium held at the UNECA Conference Centre in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.  Contact:AfricaAdapt SecretariatC/O Institute of Development Studiesat the University of SussexBrightonBN1 9REUnited KingdomTel: +44 (0)1273 876681 (for general inquiries) (for technical assistance)
