Climate Change

Driving Climate Action for the Africa we want

Our work

Increasing temperatures, higher rainfall variability, and shorter seasons (late onsets and early withdrawal of the rains) are already affecting millions of people across Eastern Africa. At ICPAC, we work to improve our understanding of climate trends, build scenarios, and analyse impacts. The high reliance of the majority of our region’s population on climate dependent resources, such as small scale farming, fishing or pastoralism, makes it one of the most vulnerable of the world to a changing climate.
