Climate risk and vulnerability: a handbook for Southern Africa

Source(s):  Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR)

This second edition of the Handbook for Southern Africa on Climate Risk and Vulnerability follows on the entry into force of the Paris Climate Change Agreement of 2015. The handbook launches a series of re-definitions, concepts and programmes for addressing climate change.

The handbook is presented in three parts and guides the reader through a simplified understanding of climate risks, vulnerability to climate change and actions to cope with the impact of climate change by connecting adaptation, mitigation and sustainable development, regional climate change strategies, climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction, climate financing, sustainability and corporate governance. Key sectors are selected to illustrate best practices in assessing vulnerability – agriculture and livestock, commercial forestry, terrestrial ecosystems and biodiversity, water resources, the coastal zone, settlements, human health, energy and air quality.

This handbook serves as an important guide for climate and development practitioners, students and policymakers.
