Many African countries are working to refine their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) to the Paris Agreement and to estimate the costs of implementing NDC actions. This review of Planning Africa’s Adaptation Finance (PAAF) assesses whether existing and planned adaptation expenditure is sufficient to avoid the economic impact from climate change (EICC). The overall objective of this report is to contribute to the ongoing improvement in the quality and influence of adaptation planning in Africa at a country level. This work could include the identification of adaptation gaps and a strategy for closing the gap by considering the potential contribution of all the main sources of finance, including both public and private expenditure. This strategy will create the analytical framework that justifies the level and nature of funding for adaptation, which should motivate governments, enterprises and international partners.
