Scientific evidence indicates with increasing certainty that the current changes in the earth’s climate system are happening as a result of human agency (Patberg and Stripple, 2007). These changes include a number of catastrophic or unusual weather events taking place at an accelerated pace, notably floods, drought and tropical storms (IPCC, 2007; Stern, 2007; Serdeczny, et al., 2016; Chiotha & Kamdonyo, 2017).
