National and Regional Adaptation

We are working with developing countries that are particularly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change to identify, formulate and implement integrated national adaptation strategies. In close cooperation with local officials and other relevant stakeholders and partners, Climate Analytics has conducted appraisal missions and developed project concepts and proposals for bilateral projects financed through the German government’s International Climate Initiative.

Publications

The stocktaking of science-based knowledge allowed on one hand to get a clear picture of the existing scientific knowledge on impacts, vulnerability, adaptation options and strategies available in Senegal for the three priority sectors. On the other hand, it allowed to identify the gaps for the availability and reliability of scientific information in each of these sectors. Based on the two stocktakings undertaken, it was possible to determine the additional information to be provided by the sectoral vulnerability studies.  

Projects

The EmBARK-project will investigate time scales and possible trajectories of socio-economic transformation processes and analyse their relevance as potential barriers to adaptation to climate change. An improved understanding of the temporal dynamics of such barriers is key in developing a more realistic understanding of future climate impacts and for scientifically robust assessment of future climate related loss and damage.
