Dr Katharine Vincent and Ms Tracy Cull are in Johannesburg today for the inception meeting of a new project with the AU specialist agency the African Risk Capacity Insurance Company Ltd. In partnership with the Frankfurt School (UNEP Collaborating Centre for Climate and Sustainable Energy Finance), and with funding from the Climate and Development Knowledge Network, the nine month project will work in seven African countries to assess the current state of adaptation planning (and adaptation planning good practice guidelines) and climate finance absorption capacity. This will inform preparation for the new Extreme Climate Facility (XCF), which is intended to support national level adaptation and disaster risk planning.
