Accelerating Africa’s Adaptation to Climate Change
Across Africa, the devastating impacts of climate change are increasing, from floods and droughts to food and water insecurity. Loss and damage caused by our climate crisis threatens the continent’s economic growth- by 2050, Africa’s adaptation costs could soar. Yet climate adaptation is slowing, and there is a huge adaptation finance gap.
The Africa Adaptation Initiative (AAI) seeks to accelerate Africa’s adaptation to climate change by strengthening collaboration through high-level, pan-African and regional dialogue, large-scale climate adaptation action, and addressing the adaptation finance gap.
