Obstacles to Africa's Adaptation to Climate Change

The current and projected severe impacts of climate change in Africa make adaptation an urgent priority.

While reducing greenhouse gas emissions is a vital task, the benefits will only emerge over time.

Adaptation to the impacts of climate change is needed now as well as the next few decades. But adaptation faces many challenges. These are mainly institutional, technical, political, social and economic. And for Africa, these remain particularly hard to control.
