AfricaAdapt is a bilingual (English/French) network of African researchers, policymakers, civil society organisations and local communities that encourages information sharing on climate change adaptation for Africa.
The network publishes information on its activities including workshops, innovation funding, radio programmes in local languages and news services for mobile phones. It also publishes video, audio and photo stories to present community perspectives on climate change adaptation methods. It links to key organisations and publications on adaptation in several fields including agriculture, fisheries, forestry, energy, water and health.
This network was developed by a German company, Ecofys, upon the initiative and with support from the Federal Environmental Agency of Germany and the European Commission. The purpose of the website is to provide an interactive international platform for discussion on future international action on climate change, including approaches of a post-2012 commitment regime under the UNFCCC and the Kyoto Protocol. The site could be of interest to researchers, climate modellers, members of country delegations to the UNFCCC, NGOs and any other individuals interested in the topic.
This organisation aims to encourage dialogue and the sharing of good practice by policymakers and opinion leaders on the future of agricultural growth in Africa. It covers topic areas such as climate change, land use, policy processes and science, technology and innovation. The website publishes free to access publications, lists of relevant events and fellowships, and online discussions on issues including small-scale agriculture. It also provides access to resources for policy engagement, such as policy briefs, and a regularly updated list of relevant organisations and websites.
This website, available in English, Portuguese and Spanish, provides a forum where people interested in reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD) in Latin America can exchange ideas, share experiences and access key information.
