UMFULA has addressed questions of climate science, climate impacts and decision-making processes for adaptation, including: How does the climate of central and southern Africa work? And how well do climate models represent the key processes responsible for climate?

Disasters kill people, destroy infrastructure, damage ecosystems and undermine development, and could increase in frequency due to climate change. There is a need for increased awareness on the latest advances in disaster risk reduction (DRR) and climate change adaptation (CCA).

Cities are increasingly integrating climate adaptation priorities into development policies and plans. However, there remains a gap in understanding how incremental urban adaptation solutions can lead to more transformative change over the long term.

This paper represents a first step in defining specific ways in which climate-smart agriculture can support the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals and nationally determined contribution objectives.

After four years of implementation, this report presents a synthesis of the Building Resilience and Adaptation to Climate Extremes and Disasters (BRACED) project annual reports, and evidence from four deep dives, from the 18-month extension, referred to as BRACED-X. BRACED-X started in January 2018, following immediately on from BRACED.

Nigeria and other countries in Sub-Saharan Africa will not achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in health and education by 2030, the 2019 Goalkeepers Report has said.

This paper presents a conceptual framework that allows users to assess a country’s practices for mobilizing private sector finance for adaptation.

The 2019 edition of the Commodities and Development Report is titled "Commodity Dependence, Climate Change and the Paris Agreement". It seeks to further the understanding of the interactions between climate change and the commodity sectors.

Investing $1.8 trillion globally from 2020 to 2030 in five areas of climate adaptation could yield up to $7.1 trillion in net benefits says the report by the Global Commission on Adaptation released today.

Climate change is a global issue, but cities—particularly ones with high population densities and robust economic activity—are likely to find themselves on the frontlines of adapting to climate extremes.
