Adaptation in Africa: the global failure to deliver on funding

Source(s):  International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED)

This paper argues that Africa is poorly equipped to adapt to current and future climate change and therefore the international commitment to support African nations in coping with climate change is justified.

It reviews the UNFCCC and the Kyoto Protocol agreement and examines how the G8 group of industrial nations and the European Union are working together to promote international action to tackle climate change. It notes that the commitments made have not been delivered so far - a limited number of Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) projects have been implemented and the funds set up to support adaptation activities in developing countries are yet to become operational. The paper also highlights that the current Official Development Assistance (ODA) funds have stalled at only a fraction of poor countries’ estimated investment needs.
