Start here for a short tour of the guide and climate compatible development
AfricaAdapt is a knowledge sharing network which focuses exclusively on Africa. This bilingual tool (English/French) aims to assist with the dissemination of knowledge relating to climate change adaptation for sustainable livelihoods. It was developed with the goal of providing stakeholders with a platform to facilitate learning, share resources and strengthen the community surrounding climate change adaptation in Africa. Though it is a website, AfricaAdapt also provides the following off-line services: radio-programming developed with community radio broadcasters across the continent, which is available in local languages; a mobile alert service, providing news updates to those without straight forward access to the internet; face-to-face meetings aimed at facilitating the exchange of ideas and best practices; and a CD-ROM and paper-based distribution service for news and resources regarding the network. There is also an innovation fund which offers small grants for new approaches to knowledge sharing.
