transnational climate impacts
This Adaptation Without Borders white paper explores the main barriers that are currently hindering business actions on adaptation and the role of public policies in creating an enabling environment that will accelerate investments in adaptation solutions and scale up their deployment.
Policy mechanisms of the African Union and the Regional Economic Communities to manage transboundary climate risks
Take a deep dive into dive into African Union (AU) policies and programmes and those of four regional economic communities (RECs) in this report by the Adaptation Without Borders partnership. Learn about the political economy of transboundary climate risks and their management within existing continental and REC climate, economic, trade, infrastructure and people-centred policies and programmes.
Explore how we can move from prototype to fully operational (and widely deployed) guidance on mainstreaming TCARs within policy and practice in this concept note. It sets out several key considerations for developing credible and salient guidance on TCAR risk management in support of NAPs, regional adaptation planning and other climate policy planning processes.
What are the scientific, technical, political and procedural barriers to including transboundary climate risks in the UNFCCC Global Stocktake? This brief seeks to redress the "transboundary gap" in the next Global Stocktake and emphasise the need for international cooperation for climate action.
Explore entry points for integrating transboundary climate risks in the global goal on adaptation framework in this Adaptation Without Borders discussion brief. The analysis considers a range of options, taking into account the stages of the adaptation cycle and themes to be covered by the framework.
Learn about how the National Adaptation Planning (NAP) process can play a role in addressing transboundary climate risks in this brief, targeting adaptation practitioners, policy-makers, and negotiators.
Explore proposed key actions towards realizing an ambition of the African Union Climate Change and Resilient Development Strategy and Action Plan (2022–2032) to “Enhance coordination between the Regional Economic Communities and Member States in addressing and managing transboundary and cascading climate risks” in this Adaptation Without Borders roadmap.
Adaptation Without Borders contributed to an illustrative compilation of indicators and targets for the Global Goal on Adaptation. Explore this document to learn about the potential targets and indicators that could be included, and the potential development of new targets and indicators where needed.
Climate hazards aren’t restricted by borders – African countries have taken a big step to address this
Learn about how Africa is tackling transboundary climate risks through the 'Roadmap for African Resilience' in this short blog post.
Learn about how transboundary and cascading climate risks could impact different African regions, with a focus on East Africa, West Africa and Southern Africa, in this Adaptation Without Borders discussion brief. Also explore the role of national and regional adaptation plans in managing these risks.
