The AdaptCost project, funded by United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) under the Climate Change – Norway Partnership, has investigated and built evidence of the costs of adaptation, producing a range of estimates for climate adaptation in Africa using different evidence.

The study aims were:

  • To help African policymakers and the international climate change community to establish a collective target for financing adaptation in Africa.
  • To investigate estimates of the economic costs of adaptation to climate change and improve understanding of adaptation processes, to provide useful information for planning adaptation programmes and supporting decision-making by national governments and multi and bilateral donor capital.
