These findings can be used to identify numerous entry points for reducing vulnerability to climate change in Africa. In this report we highlight five key themes that are important efforts aimed at addressing climate change impacts, vulnerability and adaptation in eastern and southern Africa.
Climate change poses serious threats and challenges to eastern and southern Africa.
Climate change interacts with many other types of changes.
Vulnerability to climate change is differential.
Indigenous strategies are insufficient to cope with the effects of climate change.
Societal transformations are altering the context for adapting to climate change.
