    Ghana

    La république du Ghana, l'une des démocraties africaines les plus stables, fait face à une surexploitation continue de ses ressources naturelles résultant en d'énormes pertes financières et de graves implications pour les populations pauvres. Le projet « Forêts tropicales et adaptation au changement climatique », financé par l'Union européenne, tente d'identifier des instruments appropriés pour le financement de mesures d'adaptation au changement climatique. L'un de ces outils de financement pourrait être le paiement pour services environnementaux ou PSE.

    Mali

    En 2008, le Fonds pour l'innovation en micro-assurance a attribué une subvention à Planet Guarantee (en partenariat avec AGF Afrique et Swiss Re) pour la réalisation d'une étude de faisabilité sur l'assurance indexée destinée aux producteurs de coton du Mali. Trois types d'indices ont été évalués. Étant donné le risque de base élevé que présente l'indice climatique et les ressources techniques importantes requises par l'indice satellitaire, l'indice de rendement est considéré comme l'approche la plus prometteuse.

    Africa

    Le changement climatique exacerbe la situation de pauvreté dans les pays en développement. L’Afrique rurale est particulièrement touchée par ce phénomène. Bien que des mesures d’adaptation efficaces soient connues et aient été intégrées dans les plans d’action nationaux pour l’adaptation au changement climatique, les financements internationaux ne suivent pas et ne suffisent pas à répondre aux besoins.

    Egypt

    The River Nile provides an invaluable source of livelihoods to over 160 million of people who dwell in its valley. The river valley is renowned for being a cradle of civilisation. As the populations grew and civilisation evolved, the demand for more water resources took a toll in the region. The more recent visible climate change effects have further compounded water management in the basin. Water and food security in the region is under threat, hence the need for robust transboundary water management. An effective institutional arrangement is a key factor in facilitating this process.

    Ethiopia

    Water and soils are increasingly becoming a limiting resource for meeting the food requirements
    of a growing world population. Integrated concepts for managing natural resources in a sustainable
    and environmentally sound manner show encouraging impacts, if applied on a large scale and
    over a long period like in Tigray, the northernmost regional state of Ethiopia.

    South Africa

    Poverty in rural households have deepened in the past two years through world events: unprecedented rises in food and fuel prices were followed by global economic meltdown, all amidst growing climate uncertainty. Balancing water availability within and across growing seasons, water harvesting helps to buffer households against drought. Research on water harvesting in South Africa has focused on rural household livelihoods. Innovative results on appropriate water harvesting technologies and food security facilitation techniques are now being implemented in villages across South Africa.

    Africa

    Climate change is one of the major threats to the development of rural Africa, and without wide-ranging adaptation strategies the challenge it presents cannot be met. Although appropriate measures have been identi? ed, international funding for adaptation has not materialised at the rate that was pledged. This is irresponsibly delaying the implementation of adaptation measures.

    Madagascar

    German Development Cooperation has developed an approach for the sustainable production of charcoal that has proved to have a considerable impact in Northern Madagascar. Since both environmental and socioeconomic aspects are addressed in a very effective way, this approach has high potential referring to global challenges such as land degradation, rural poverty and climate change.
