Action Plan on Climate Change
Climate Change is affecting all countries, but Least Developed Countries and other vulnerable developing countries are expected to be hit earliest and hardest. Africa will be particularly affected in terms of food security, sustainable water supply and extreme weather phenomena such as floods, droughts and threats of desertification. Economies and livelihoods of an increasing number of communities, countries and sub-regions in Africa continue to decline due to desert encroachment partly emanating from climate change and locally generated land degradation processes.
Draft Joint Roadmap on the Climate Change Partnership
The joint roadmap was presented during the 12th Africa-EU Ministerial Troika on 28 April 2009 in Luxembourg. The roadp map will serve as the basis for further work on the implementation of the 1st Action Plan (2008-2010) of the Joint Africa-EU Strategy. All activities under this partnership will take place under the following overarching priorities:
A. Capacity development of Africa for climate change.
B. Support to adaptation and mitigation efforts in Africa.
