CARE and FANRPAN welcome the opening of the Southern Africa Regional Climate Forum (SARCOF-22) and note, with concern, the prediction of an El Niño season for the region. The two organisations hope that governments in the southern Africa region, and their partners, will agree on and implement practical actions to avert the impacts of this weather phenomenon. Since the forum is taking place some months before the onset of the rainfall season, the region has an opportunity to plan and ensure readiness to deal with predicted impacts.
