AAAP Chapter in the State and Trends in Adaptation Report 2022

8 November, 2022

The Africa Adaptation Acceleration Program (AAAP) is Africa’s response to the impacts of the climate crisis. This flagship program for Africa has been endorsed at the largest-ever gathering of the African Heads of State and Government focused on adaptation, and welcomed by President Ali Bongo Ondimba of Gabon for actualizing the vision of the Africa Adaptation Initiative (AAI). The AAAP delivers on the ground to support African countries for a faster, stronger post-COVID-19 economic recovery based on climateresilient development pathways. Through AAAP, the African Development Bank (AfDB) and the Global Center on Adaptation (GCA) are mobilizing US$25 billion by 2025 to accelerate adaptation action in Africa through interventions in four priority areas/ pillars: food security, resilient infrastructure, youth entrepreneurship and job creation, and innovative climate adaptation finance.
