This document presents a review of current and planned adaptation action in West Africa. For the purpose of this review, West Africa is defined as including Benin, Burkina Faso, Cape Verde, Côte d’Ivoire, The Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Liberia, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone and Togo. The review first provides an overview of adaptation action at a regional level, highlighting commonalities and differences among the countries of West Africa. The appendices that follow discuss adaptation action taking place in each of the 16 countries in the region.

This document is one of 12 regional profiles completed as a contribution to the Review of Current and Planned Adaptation Action in Africa, Asia-Pacific and Latin America and the Caribbean. Its purpose is to provide a baseline understanding of who is doing what on adaptation in three developing regions—Africa, Asia-Pacific, and Latin America and the Caribbean—and in priority adaptation sectors. Based on available resources, it seeks to provide a rapid assessment of: (i) priority interests and adaptation needs; (ii) efforts by governments to support adaptation though policy and planning; (iii) the scope of international support for adaptation efforts in different countries and sectors; and (iv) potential gaps in adaptation efforts at the country and regional levels.
