Keeping track of adaptation actions in Africa: targeted fiscal stimulus actions making a difference


This graphical report presents practical examples of successful low-cost adaptation solutions from around sub-Saharan Africa in one concise handbook. The report includes examples of successful adaptation projects that have provided the impetus for large-scale government investments and policy action.

Using projects implemented in various countries in sub-Saharan Africa, this document clearly demonstrates how investment in adaptation actions can provide, not just low-cost solutions to climate change challenges, but can actually stimulate local economies through more efficient use of natural capital, job creation and increased household incomes.

The first part of the report provides snapshots of the current and predicted future impacts of climate change on livelihoods, agriculture, and human and ecosystem health in Africa, detailing impacts by region, country and even city. The second half of the report describes how countries through low-cost climate adaptation actions can improve the health and functioning of ecosystems; build community capacity to sustainably manage ecosystems; improve agricultural productivity; and innovatively store water.
