A preliminary assessment of energy and ecosystem resilience in ten African countries
This project is a preliminary attempt to
identify points of vulnerability as they relate to climate change-related
events and sketch out what changes are needed, both politically and
programmatically, to increase resilience.
Subsequent chapters explore the current
state of vulnerability and potential for adaptation.
Results from in-country
assessments are then presented. The final chapter offers recommendations on how
best to ensure that issues of sustainable energy development, adaptation and
resiliency are central components of any poverty reduction strategy.
