African Union Climate Change and Resilient Development Strategy and Action Plan

​​​​​​​​​​​​​The African Union recently published the Climate Change and Resilient Development Strategy and Action Plan (2022-2032) for Africa (AU CC Strategy), which is a 10-year strategic planning document to address the impacts and encumbrances of climate change which hamper Africa's integration and development. The AU CC Strategy aims to assist Africa take advantage of opportunities related to the transition to a low-emission green economy and green recovery efforts, by providing a continental framework for collective action and enhanced cooperation in addressing climate change issues. It also acknowledges that while adaptation and resilience-building remain Africa’s top priority, mitigation actions will also be required as part of the region’s climate response.

The AU CC Strategy defines the main priorities, interventions and actions required to build resilient capacities for adaptation, reduce the vulnerability of affected communities, and manage the risks related to climate change and climate-induced extreme events, as well as to unlock the benefits of the mitigation potential of the continent.​​
