About

Climate change is a subject of critical importance for both scientists and global citizens. Botswana profiles a wonderful example of developing world issues set in pristine environments where these debates still have the potential to support both people and the environment. The Botswana Kalahari is a remote and relatively undisturbed desert environment that provides an ideal natural laboratory for exploring climate change issues such as carbon storage, food production and the interactions between humans and the environment. Safaris in the Okavango Delta and Central Kalahari Game Reserve expose students to both wetland and savanna ecosystems while visits to a local school and cooperative education center provide insights into the region's bush culture. The program is based out of a camp and the lectures, program activities, and daily living take place outdoors.
