 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

Africa is probably the most vulnerable continent to climate change and climate variability and shows diverse range of agro-ecological and geographical features. Thus the impacts of climate change can be very high and will greatly differ across the continent, and even within countries. There is a urgent need for the most appropriate and up-to-date tools to better understand and predict climate change, assess its impact on African ecosystems and population, and develop the correct adaptation strategies. In particular the current proposal will focus on the following specific objectives: 1- Develop improved climate predictions on seasonal to decadal climatic scales, especially relevant to SSA; 2- Assess climate impacts in key sectors of SSA livelihood and economy, especially water resources and agriculture; 3- Evaluate the vulnerability of ecosystems and civil population to inter-annual variations and longer trends (10 years) in climate; 4- Suggest and analyse new suited adaptation strategies, focused on local needs; 5- Develop a new concept of 10 years monitoring and forecasting warning system, useful for food security, risk management and civil protection in SSA; 6- Analyse the economic impacts of climate change on agriculture and water resources in SSA and the cost-effectiveness of potential adaptation measures. This objectives will be achieved by an integrated working approach that involves 9 European, 8 African and 1 International Organization.

Introduzione (Teaser)

A multinational project produced models to predict and manage the effects of climate change in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA).

Descrizione progetto (Article)

Africa is vulnerable to the unpredictability caused by an unstable climate for many reasons. These include a broad range of ecological and geographical environments, a lack of socioeconomic development and a lack of appropriate modelling tools.

With this in mind, the http://www.climafrica.net (CLIMAFRICA) (Climate change predictions in sub-Saharan Africa: Impacts and adaptations) project was established. Its aim was to improve climate predictions for SSA and to assess climate impacts in key socioeconomic sectors such as water and agriculture.

Project partners developed and deployed modelling tools to assess the impacts of climate change on ecosystems. From these, more sophisticated models were developed, including a multilayer model of soil moisture that enabled researchers to study the relationships between rainfall and soil moisture for the first time.

Furthermore, models were used to predict carbon and water flux across the continent up to the year 2100, as well as predict the yield of major crops such as sorghum, maize and millet.

These and other models and information were incorporated into a medium-term warning system (MTWS) for food security in Africa. The MTWS together with the socioeconomic results can be used to identify areas and groups of most concern, in terms of vulnerability of ecosystems and civil population.

A comprehensive analysis of CLIMAFRICA results integrated with other results can be used to determine the resilience to climate change of water resources and different crop systems. It can also be used to propose better use of land and risk management practices to mitigate negative impacts.

This information, if linked with appropriate capacity-building initiatives, will allow better preparedness in the face of climate change. This in turn will help to support the development of resilient communities.

Project results can also contribute to the development of interactive user-friendly tools for climate change predictions from the seasonal to decadal scales. These results will provide data on the impacts on crop productivity, thereby enabling farmers to plan climate smart agricultural decisions based on crop species or varieties, planting times, water input and other strategies.
