On behalf of the ICTWCC project management team, please accept our heartiest appreciation to all of you for participating in the photo competition. Climate Change is considered to be one of the most serious threats to sustainable development, with adverse impacts on all developmental sectors including agriculture. A significant body of evidence points to developing nations in Africa, Asia and Latin America as the most vulnerable regions to climate change. The ICTWCC project offers scholarship to 31 grantees from Africa, Asia and Latin America & Caribbean. The grantees focus their study on the global impacts of Water and Climate Change, with ICT as the mode of adaptation or mitigation. The project is jointly coordinated by the School of Computing & Informatics (SCI) and LARMAT of the University of Nairobi. It is funded by IDRC, Canada. As the adage goes, a picture is worth a thousand words, ICTWCC project had run a photo competition. The photo submissions were made by the project grantees; source of pictures being their field research. It has been an interesting journey from egging the grantees to send the submissions, and then asking them to receive votes for their submissions. The most exciting part was counting the number of increasing votes on a daily basis. The grantees and the team have all worked hard to spread the word and gain a vote for the respective submissions. So the time has now arrived to announce the winners!!!!! The winners are listed on our website. Visit http://t.co/n72Vt3F5Zs to see the proud winners. Look out for our soon to be launched Paper writing Competition. Heartiest congratulations to our winners.
