Climate risk analyses for Sub-Saharan Africa

Climate change challenges livelihoods in many countries, with developing countries such as in sub-Saharan Africa particularly affected. Adequate response to climate risks is needed at different levels and in different forms, ranging from national policy processes and planning to local implementation. As regards the national scale, 89% of all Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) cover adaptation content. However, these NDCs do not provide practical or detailed guidance on how to operationalize adaptation goals, e.g. in priority sectors, or with regard to investments needs and benefits. To date, especially developing countries often lack comprehensive analyses projecting climate risks helpful for cost-benefit analysis, in order to generate a profound information basis for NDC and NAP investment planning. To address this prevalent bottleneck for operationalizing and implementing NDCs and NAPs (1) projections of climate and weather impacts for economy and society and (2) prioritization of adaptation investments to cope with climate and weather risks e.g. via cost-benefit-analysis are needed.
