Africa's Adaptation Gap
Africa’s Adaptation Gap – climate change impacts, adaptation and costs for Africa is a technical report, commissioned by the African Ministerial Conference on the Environment (ACMEN). It analyses the environmental and financial costs which are likely to incur for Africa should governments fail to close the Emissions Gap before 2020, leading to a 4°C warmer world at the end of the century.
