The Transformational Potential: to enhance the adaptive capacity and resilience of Africa’s most vulnerable populations and ecosystems against climate change-induced and natural hazards, with a special focus on the Least Developed Countries (LDCs).

The Team Europe Proposal, specific objective is to improve technical and financial capacities of partner countries and regional organisations in Africa to define, prioritise, implement, and monitor low-emission, climate resilient, gender-responsive and inclusive development pathways.

Pillar 1. Support collection, aggregation and analysis of risk and asset data (climate and hazard risk information, disaster loss and asset data, drivers of risk and vulnerabilities), incl. support to Africa National Risk Information Platforms and regional and national Early Warning Systems and Mechanisms.
Pillar 2. Strengthen policy, governance, and risk-informed decisions regarding climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction, including through operationalization and implementation of technical requests through the Santiago Network and the Global Shield against Climate Risk.
Pillar 3. Enhance access to climate adaptation finance (strengthen Africa’s public sector capacity, promote investment in climate action from NSAs, contributions to Global Climate Funds).
Pillar 4. Strengthen Climate and Disaster Risk Finance and Insurance (CDRFI) solutions for Africa by enhancing the Global Shield against Climate Risks and related initiatives, to enhance protection against residual risk:

Cross-cutting: TEI steering, monitoring, evaluation, and learning (exchange of best practices and lessons learnt)
