Climate Analytics supports the World Bank project IDA17 Multi-Sectoral Investment Plans for Climate and Disaster Risk Management in Cameroon, Ghana, Malawi, Mali, and Senegal in scaling up support in five African countries – Cameroon, Ghana, Malawi, Mali, and Senegal – in developing and implementing country-led, multi-sectoral plans and investments for managing climate and disaster risk.

Our team works with disaster risk management specialists at the World Bank, local consultants in each of the countries, as well as coordinating closely with government ministries and offices involved in the planning and implementation of climate change adaptation and disaster risk management measures.

Outputs of the project include a technical analytical work on the impact of climate change and disasters on socioeconomic development and poverty, as well as, the support in designing investment plans and the identification of possible sources of climate financing. These outputs aim to provide information to the World Bank and partner countries in line with mid- to long-term development planning, and to add scientific support in the prioritisation and targeting of investments, plans, and programs for every region and major sector in the country.
