ADAPTCost Project: Analysis of the Economic Costs of Climate Change Adaptation in Africa

Abstract

The AdaptCost project investigated and built evidence on the potential costs of adaptation in Africa. The aims of the project were to help African policymakers and the international climate change community to establish a collective target for financing adaptation in Africa, and to investigate estimates of the economic costs of adaptation to climate change and improve understanding of adaptation processes, to provide useful information for planning adaptation programmes and supporting decision-making by national governments and multi and bilateral donor capital. This monograph summarises the findings from the AdaptCost project, which support the statement from the Tunis Roundtable on the Economics of Adaptation.
