Crown Capital Management Climate Concerns: Africa Climate Change

  • The gaps in knowledge include how to conduct climate change impact assessment and vulnerability analysis, finding and implementing suitable policies and plans for improved resilience, experimenting through pilot projects, demonstration of successful initiatives, full scale implementation, and monitoring and evaluation of adaptation strategies that have been undertaken.
    The growing awareness of the impact of climate change has resulted in a large number of agencies, organisations, research institutes, and political bodies seeking to understand the patterns of vulnerability and how to adapt. While much information exists on successfully adapting to climate change's effects, it is often fragmented and difficult to access for those who need it. In Africancountries, there are still significant barriers and constraints to adaptation efforts.
    Climate change is one of the defining issues of our time, and Africa is the most vulnerable continent to its impact. A crucial determinant of the continent's futureis how well adaptation strategies are developed and implemented throughout the region. Adaptation is knowledge intensive, and there is an urgent need for improved access to relevant and usable knowledge to support new initiatives.
