Enhancing action on adaptation in Africa
The Africa Adaptation Initiative (AAI), supported by UNDP and the EU, is preparing the State of Adaptation in Africa Report (SoAR) that aims to inform the African Heads of States, the African Group of Negotiators (AGN), policymakers and others, helping to accelerate adaptation that supports development priorities in the region as outlined in the African Union’s Agenda 2063.
The announcement of the first steering committee comes at a critical time as the African continent looks at ways to anticipate and manage the adverse effects of climate change that continues to threaten the economic growth of African states and impede progress toward achieving their national development and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
