African Adaptation Programme
"UNDP, with funding from the Government of Japan, recently launched a new programme that uses an innovative approach to climate change adaptation in Africa.
Under this programme, UNDP will assist 21 African countries in implementing integrated and comprehensive adaptation actions and resilience plans. The projects will ensure that national development processes incorporate climate change risks and opportunities to secure development gains under a changing climate. UNDP will help countries establish an enabling environment and develop the capacity required to design, finance, implement, and monitor long-term and cost-effective adaptation policies and plans.
The programme, entitled Supporting Integrated and Comprehensive Approaches to Climate Change Adaptation in Africa, has a budget of US$92.1 million over three years. It will fund national activities supported by regional services."
