Review of current and planned adaptation action: Southern Africa

Source(s):  Adaptation Partnership

This document presents a review of current and planned adaptation action in southern Africa. For the purpose of this review, this region is designated as including the countries of Botswana, Comoros, Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Seychelles, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe. The review first provides an overview of adaptation action at a regional level, highlighting commonalities and differences between these countries. The appendices discuss adaptation action taking place in each country.

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.
