Kampala — The National Curriculum Development Centre (NCDC) is set to roll out a revised lower Secondary School Curriculum related to climate change issues as part of the programme to integrate climate change into education.
Speaking to East African Business Week, Ronald Sekandwa from the Social Studies Learning Area said the government plans to begin rolling out the programme in 2016 starting with the senior one students of that year.

"If all goes well as planned, we expect to have our first graduands of the new curriculum passing out senior four in 2019," Sekandwa said. "Climate change issues came after the body had successfully reformed the primary school curriculum."
NCDC is an autonomous body of the Ministry of Education mandated with activities not limited to developing the curricula and developing teaching materials for pre and primary lower secondary, teacher training institutions and other tertiary institutions.

Sekandwa said NCDC was tasked to reform the lower secondary curriculum from senior one to senior four following a memorandum signed by the Ministry of Water and officials from the climate change unit in the Ministry of Education.
"Basics of climate change to an ordinary senior one student shall be considered and climate change being a cross cutting issue, the NCDC decided to fix it in two learning areas, in Social studies and Science," he said.

A senior Climate Change officer, from the Ministry of Water and Environment Bob Natif said, the survey that was conducted by the ministry indicated that there was still lack of knowledge and skills to address climate change issues.
"National Development Plan (NDP) recognizes the threat of climate change and the issue of capacity development.
Therefore to attain a green and free green emission environment, we need to strengthen the human, institutional and individual," Natif further stated.

    I want to express my appreciation to this writer for bailing me out of this type of circumstance. As a result of researching through the world-wide-web and finding solutions which are not pleasant, I thought my life was done. Being alive minus the approaches to the problems you have fixed by way of the article content is a serious case, as well as the kind that would have in a negative way affected my entire career if I hadn't discovered the blog. Your primary natural talent and kindness in dealing with everything was tremendous. I'm not sure what I would've done if I hadn't come upon such a step like this. I can also now look ahead to my future. Thanks a lot so much for the professional and result oriented help. I won't be reluctant to recommend your blog post to anybody who would like direction about this subject.

    I agree with the author, the Internet has lots of function. We use google to surf everything.Technology gives us a convenient life, and we spend less time on doing by ourselves.The internet definitely influences on our reading, we should not always rely on the Internet. We need to make best decision when we heard something.
