State and trends in adaptation report 2022

Africa is facing a critical shortfall in funding for climate adaptation according to this new report, State and Trends in Adaptation in Africa 2022, by the Global Center on Adaptation. The report reveals that cumulative adaptation finance to 2030 will come to less than one-quarter of the estimated needs stated by African countries in their National Determined Contributions (NDCs) unless more funding for climate adaptation is secured. In 2019 and 2020 an estimated $11.4 billion was committed to climate adaptation finance in Africa with more than 97% of the funds coming from public actors and less than 3% from private sectors. This is significantly less than the $52.7 billion annually to 2030 it is estimated African countries will need.
