UNEP's report identifies a vast gap between Africa's adaptation costs and the available funds.

Rapport forside

An earlier UNEP report showed that the efforts of global emission reductions are not yet at a level where the world is on track to hold global warming below 2C.

This new report predicts that even in a scenario holding global warming below 2C, Africa's adaptation costs could rise to USD 50 billion per year by 2050.

The estimated costs could further double to USD 100 billion per year by 2050 for a scenario reaching over 4C warming by 2100.

The climate change challenge exceeds the capacity of the African continent to respond to projected damages and impacts through domestic resources – even with a broadened base for raising additional funds.

The report underlines that a steep and rapid increase in adaptation funding from developed to developing countries are urgently needed, to close the adaptation-funding gap that the continent is facing.
