Climate governance in Africa: adaptation strategies and institutions

Source(s):  Heinrich Böll Foundation, Regional Office Southern Africa

This report provides a synthesis of climate change governance issues emerging from the case studies. The key findings include: (i) the policy framework for climate change adaptation governance is inadequate, (ii) positioning of climate change adaptation within the environment sector limits effective integration, (iii) macro-economic development frameworks undermine adaptive capacity, (iv) gender is not mainstreamed into key adaptation response frameworks, and (v) there is limited space for civic engagement (particularly for Non-Governmental Organisation and Community-Based Organisation participation) due to financial, human resources and political constraints.
