Keeping Track of Adaptation Actions in Africa. Targeted Fiscal Stimulus Actions Making a Difference

Keeping Track of Adaptation Actions in Africa. Targeted Fiscal Stimulus Actions Making a Difference
  • United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). August 2014
  • Using projects conducted in various countries in sub-Saharan Africa, this publication shows, in myriad ways, the direct benefits of adaptation actions and their capability to provide transitional pathways to green growth and sustainable development. It also shows how concrete demonstration actions can provide solutions that can move countries and communities in Africa towards climate-resilient development. The first part of the booklet presents "snapshots" of the many elements of the climate change context (including water scarcity, agricultural production, deforestation and energy sources and uses). The second part talks about solutions to adapt to climate change. Pages 18-19 are dedicated to water, population and economic development linkages while page 20 focuses on sea level rise, drought and flooding.
