Mission & Disaster Reduction Profile

AfricaAdapt is an independent bilingual network (French/English) focused exclusively on Africa. The Network’s aim is to facilitate the flow of climate change adaptation knowledge for sustainable livelihoods between researchers, policy makers, civil society organisations and communities who are vulnerable to climate variability and change across the continent.

AfricaAdapt is currently hosted by four partner institutions, each of whom has a dedicated Knowledge Sharing Officer (KSO) working for the network.
