AfCAP has commissioned a project, starting in April 2016, to produce regional guidance on the development of climate-resilient rural access in Africa through research and knowledge sharing. The study focusses on: (a) demonstrating appropriate engineering and non-engineering adaptation procedures; (b) sustainable enhancement in the capacity of three AfCAP partner countries; (c) sustainable enhancement in the capacity of additional AfCAP partner countries; and (d) uptake and embedment across AfCAP partner countries. This Document is a Country Report on the management of vulnerability and adaptation to climate change using the principles and recommendations set out in the Handbook and the relevant Guidelines. It features issues specific to Ethiopia, dealing with the issues of adaptation, incorporation of climate risk information into systems, and actions to put in place a policy that specifically deals with incorporating climate change adaptation (CCA) at the Ethiopian Roads Authority (ERA) and its operations.
This work is part of the Applied Research on Rural Roads and Transport Services through Community Access Programmes in Africa and Asia (AFCAP2 and AsCAP)
