In order to help address the significant threat to Africa’s development climate change poses, the Africa Community Access Partnership (AfCAP) has commissioned a two-phased project that started in April 2016 and is expected to be completed by December 2018, to produce regional guidance on the development of climate-resilient rural access in Africa through research and knowledge sharing within and between participating countries. The output will assist the development of a climate-resilient road network that reaches fully into and between rural communities.
This Inception Report for Phase 2 outlines the general methodology and programme that will be followed with respect to demonstrations, capacity building, uptake and embedment, and provides information on progress on the Adaptation Handbook and associated guidelines; workshops held in Tanzania and Zambia; and correlation between the proposed vulnerability assessment methodology and those developed by the World Bank, the European Union and the Asian Development Bank.
This project is funded by DFID under the Applied Research on Rural Roads and Transport Services through Community Access Programmes in Africa and Asia (AFCAP2 and AsCAP)
