Economics, political economy and behavioural science study




July 26, 2016


This  CDKN project will analyse and identify the types of development decisions that should be actively accounting for future (10 years +) climate in decisions taken today, and will review barriers to achieving this. The main objective is to provide quantitative evidence of adaptation strategies that will help to inform decisions made by development practitioners in Africa.

The study will establish where and how long-lived policies, investments and plans might differ if future climate change is considered and the economic case on the risk of lock-in of capital/investment to future climate over the next few decades in Africa – and whether this might justify higher levels of climate “proofing” today.

The study has been commissioned to inform the Future Climate for Africa programme (FCFA) and will be carried out by the Global Climate Adaptation Partnership (GCAP) and Vivid Economics. Find the CDKN project page here.
