Mid-term stocktaking: Africa Adaptation Programme supports the governments of 20 African countries to achieve transformational change

The Africa Adaptation Programme (AAP) is supporting the governments of 20 African countries to achieve transformational change designed to shift climate change adaption planning and interventions from siloed, single-sector project approaches to a comprehensive, strategic approach characterized by multiple-sector integrated planning.


AAP was established under the Japan-United Nations Development Programme Joint Framework for Building Partnership to Address Climate Change in Africa, which was founded at the Fourth Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD) in May 2008. The US$92.1 million programme, funded by the Government of Japan, was launched in 2009 by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in partnership with the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and the World Food Programme (WFP). The AAP runs until the end of 2012.


The 20 participating countries are Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Congo, Ethiopia, Gabon, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Mauritius, Morocco, Mozambique, Namibia, Niger, Nigeria, Rwanda, Sao Tome and Principe, Senegal, Tanzania and Tunisia.
