Unpacking the Nexus between Climate Change and Extractive Industries in Sub-Saharan Africa

This book offers discussions on potential of extractive industries to drive growth, support sustainable development and poverty reduction in Sub-Saharan Africa in line with Goal 13 of the Sustainable Development Goals on Climate Action. It achieves this by compiling diverse studies that explores the nexus between climate change and extractive industries in the region. The book does not only advance understanding of the extractive industries but also proposes strategic actions that will potentially lead to more effective climate change mitigation and adaption actions along the production chain in the region.

Enabling Climate Smart Agriculture across East Africa

East Africa’s agriculture sector is increasingly vulnerable to the effects of climate change, challenging farmer livelihoods and regional food security. Climate Smart Agriculture’s (CSA) integrated approach will be critical to address this challenge by promoting increased agricultural productivity, resilience, and climate change mitigation. CSA encompasses a wide array of practices, technologies, and approaches, necessitating the participation of a diverse range of stakeholders spanning the public, private and development spheres. Strengthening synergies between public agencies, development partners and private enterprises to address the challenge of agricultural productivity and food security in the region calls for the establishment of an enabling regulatory environment. This Policy Brief provides a general overview of the CSA landscape in East Africa, focusing on the enabling environment, to define a set of policy recommendations.

Klimareport 2021

Der fünfte Klimareport präsentiert Beiträge aus den weltweiten Klima- und Energieprogrammen der Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung

Im Mittelpunkt des Klimareports 2021 stehen die potenziellen Auswirkungen von Extremwetterereignissen und Folgen des Klimawandels auf den Agrarsektor. Wie wirken sich die Veränderungen auf Migrationsbewegungen aus? Und wie auf die Sicherheitspolitik? Wir blicken in verschiedene Weltregionen und zeigen auf, dass die Folgen des Klimawandels hochkomplex sind und wir pragmatische und langfristige Lösungsansätze brauchen. Unser Klimareport 2021 bietet Analysen und Lösungsansätze an.

An African Climate Finance Agenda for COP26

Important decisions on these issues are likely to be taken at the twenty-sixth Conference of the Parties (COP26) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), convened in November 2021, which will have far reaching ramifications for African countries. It is imperative that both state and non-state African voices on these issues are presented to drive an agenda that is Africa-centric and which speaks to the unique challenges faced by the region. In this context, SAIIA partnered with the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung’s Regional Programme: Energy Security and Climate Change in Sub-Saharan Africa to implement the project Climate Finance Innovations Towards COP26. The goal of the project was to support a shared African agenda around climate finance in the lead up to COP26, considering in particular the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on climate finance, as well as the themes of adaptation finance and private finance.

Whilst the majority of litigation to date has taken place in developed countries, there has been a significant increase and expansion in scope and geographical coverage over the past five years now with some 172 cases documented worldwide, many of which are in developing countries.

Opportunities for Circular Economy in Africa’s Mining Sector

During the annual meeting of the African Circular Economy Alliance (ACEA), KAS presented a report on Opportunities for Circular Economy in Africa’s Mining Sector. The mining sector provides a significant economic contribution to African countries, at the same time minerals and metals from the continent are needed for a transition to a low carbon economy and thus demand and markets are expected to increase significantly over the next years. It is therefore crucial to enhance opportunities for sustainable mining practices and operations
