Adapting to climate change in Sub-Saharan Africa

Source(s):  International Monetary Fund (IMF)

Sub-Saharan Africa is the region in the world most vulnerable to climate change. Rising temperatures, rising sea levels, and rainfall anomalies are increasing the frequency and intensity of natural disasters and are markedly transforming the region’s geography. Adapting to climate change is critical to safeguarding and further advancing hard-earned improvements in incomes and education and health outcomes across sub-Saharan Africa over the past three decades.

However, adaptation will be especially challenging given countries’ limited capacity and financial resources. This document examines policies and structural areas that could help the region make strides in adapting to climate change by building resilience and improving coping mechanisms.
