Adapting to climate change in Eastern and Southern Africa

In Africa, millions will suffer from climate change impacts on agriculture, water availability, ecosystem services and biodiversity. It’s urgent for countries in the region to take action to reduce vulnerability and enhance local communities’ capacity to adapt. 
The International Union for Conservation of Nature (or IUCN) has been working with three countries to do just that.

In Mozambique, Tanzania and Zambia, IUCN staff members have been collaborating with national governments, local NGOs and selected communities on a pilot project, funded by the government of Finland, called the « Climate Change and Development project », or CCDP.

The project was developed with the aim of ensuring that policies and strategies lead to activities that emphasize the role of water and forests in adapting to climate change in the region.
