Enhancing Resilience to Climate and Ecosystem Changes in Semi-Arid Africa: An Integrated Approach (CECAR-AFRICA)


The goal of this project is to propose effective and implementable measures to build an integrated resilience enhancement strategy. This “Ghana model” can potentially be applied across the African Savannah. The findings of this project are expected to contribute to the framework of adaption measures agreed upon at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change 16th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP16) and REDD+, the Fifth Assessment Report of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), and the Aichi Biodiversity Targets adopted at the Convention on Biological Diversity tenth meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP 10).
