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.

    Vispipuuro :P Se on vaan niin hyvää. Minäkin muuten suon visparini kylmänä. Samoin riisipuuron. Muut puurot syödään "pakolla" ja lämpimänä, mutta vispi- ja riisipuuro syödään harvinaisena herkkuna ja aina kylmänä.

    Between me and my husband weve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years Ive settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
