According to the Global Centre on adaptation, even prior to COVID-19, global attention had always skewed towards mitigation, taking up over 90% of the resources, with less than 10% going to adaptation.

As the world gathers in Glasgow to tackle the issues of Climate Change, the African Risk Capacity group will host, on the 4th and 10th of November, two lectures that will take place on the sidelines of the COP26.

Forging new partnerships for climate adaptation in Africa

 

Lecture 1 | Strengthening health outcomes through risk management and adaptation

14:15 GMT, 4 November 2021 at COP26 Health Pavillion in Glasgow


The COVID-19 crisis has further constrained climate and health adaptation. Rising government debt has complicated domestic resource mobilisation, and global climate finance decreased by 10% in 2020. As a result, climate impacts far outpace adaptation action. To break with this trend, adaptation must be mainstreamed in COVID-19 recovery plans, and in development agendas, leveraging the triple dividend of responding to the health crisis; driving Africa’s economic development; and building climate-resilient societies. 

How can African countries prepare for the next pandemic? What needs to be done to ensure health systems across the continent are strengthened and what policies and risk mechanisms need to be put in place to support adaption?
