The impacts of climate change are already resulting in economic losses around different countries in Africa. Activities to adapt to the impacts of climate change come with a range of costs, and associated implications for the need for financial investments. It is critical for African countries to gain an improved understanding of their adaptation investment requirements in order to build a stronger basis for articulating their financing priorities and attracting capital.
