Climate change is both the drastic and gradual shift in the weather patterns in the earth’s atmosphere at a place over a long period of time.
The emergence of climatic change is due to many factors .The recent Copenhagen Meeting where the global community came together to come up with way to control the disastrous events caused by this change in climate which has eventually caught up with most developed countries, the main causes for this negative shift in the earth’s atmosphere were outlined to be emissions from vehicles, green house gases, untreated gaseous waste released from industries into the atmosphere.
However, Uganda is a developing country whose economy is not only based, but is mostly dominated by the agricultural sector. Therefore, the main causes of climatic change in Uganda do not include pollution from gaseous waste released from factories and industries. Though countries like Russia ,Germany, China and Japan among others do also contribute to the difference in weather patterns that affect Uganda in that they aggravate the erosion of the ozone layer faster than Uganda does or ever will because of their levels of industrialization are higher than Uganda.
It is logical therefore to state that in Uganda this phenomenon was brought about by two main factors.
The first of which is,
