The Africa office focuses on climate science and governance issues relating to Least Developed Countries (LDCs). Our presence in Lomé, Togo, has enabled us to considerably expand our networks in West and sub-Saharan Africa, creating strong ties to key regional institutions, government ministries and agencies as well as civil society actors in this particularly climate vulnerable region. This allows us to tailor projects to meet these countries’ specific demands, in consultation with these stakeholders, and ultimately enable climate policy decision making to be based on robust scientific evidence.
Our Africa team focuses on developing an interface between climate science and policy, in the context of climate plan (NDC) implementation and building resilience to climate change through technical support to countries in mainstreaming their National Adaptation Plan (NAP) processes.
These play a significant role in promoting comprehensive climate action and adaptation to the adverse effects of climate change on vital aspects such as food security, water, health and the frequency and intensity of extreme weather events. In this context, we are able to support by providing capacity building for ministers, high-level officials, climate negotiators and practitioners and facilitating access to climate finance. Our experts also provide scientific capacity building to institutions and climate service providers.
Francophone LDC negotiation support
Our Africa office is involved in providing scientific, policy and analytical support to assist francophone LDCs in the UNFCCC, Green Climate Fund and related climate fora, as part of the IMPACT project. Based on the latest science, the office provides French-language on-demand technical, political, strategic and legal briefings and advice to negotiators, with the aim of supporting the establishment of an effective and legally binding multilateral climate regime. We also support other stakeholders, including international organisations, governments and NGOs.
Delegates from CILLS/AGHRYMET, UEMOA and ECOWAS, as well as IPCC and UNFCCC focal points and key scientists from ten West-African countries jointly took a closer look at the upcoming IPCC Special Report on climate changed land at an international workshop held at WASCAL Competence Center on 27 and 28 May 2019, and organised by Climate Analytics and WASCAL under the IMPACT project.
Our experts collaborate with regional climate service providers and scientific bodies, including West African Science Service Center on Climate Change and Adapted Land Use (WASCAL) and Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).
