How Can Africa Adapt to Climate Change?
This event invites leading global exerts to discuss how Africa can best adapt to climate change. It will explore priorities for different regions, assess the opportunities and challenges in current thinking and approaches, and ask how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected adaptation trajectories, including on issues around cooperation at regional and global levels.

Rising temperatures, changing rain patterns and more extreme weather are major threats to Africa’s socioeconomic development, health, food and water provision and security. Numerous reports from international organisations warn climate trends will upend ways of life with grave human cost, hitting the most vulnerable the hardest. While mitigation of climate change often dominates discussions, adaptation by African countries is urgent to create sustainable livelihoods. Although the range of policy approaches for adaptation is growing, with nature-based solutions such as the Great Green Wall Initiative and national-level planning instruments viewed as essential, questions loom large over whether these measures will be fully supported. Does the current financing go to the right places, and is it anywhere near enough?

Hosted by The Firoz Lalji Institute for Africa.

Attendance at an event will be shared with other parts of the School.
