Funding Opportunities at Africa Adaptation Initiative (AAI)

As the leading Africa-led adaptation initiative created in response to a mandate by African Heads of State at the 25th African Union Summit in June 2015. The AAI’s overall purpose is to enhance concrete adaptation action and address loss and damage on the Continent in the context of the implementation of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), the African Union’s (AU’s) 2063 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It is designed as the initiative for Africa driven by Africa.

The devastating impacts of climate change have increased in Africa – including severe droughts, floods, reduced agricultural yields, food and water insecurity. Climate change threatens the economic growth of African states and impedes progress towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. The recent IPCC report has found that the GDP per capita for 1991–2010 in Africa was on average 13.6% lower compared to if climate change had not occurred.
