This edited collection chronicles the public policy responses to climate change and current and potential impacts that will affect critical and priority sectors within and across African countries now and in the coming decades. Contributions cover governance and policy responses to climate change, emphasizing continental governance and policy responses, national governance and policy responses (what selected countries in Africa are doing), and local or community policy and programmatic responses (what some selected major African communities are doing). Each chapter adopts multi-disciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches, combining insights from social and policy sciences, emphasizing existing gaps, particularly in the area of decision-making, governance and local climate action. The book offers both theoretical and practical contributions, with the aim of advancing academic discourse and thinking, policymaking and implementation of climate interventions in Africa.
