COMESA Adapation Project

The Common Market for East and Southern Africa (COMESA) and the Government of Norway have signed an agreement through which Norway will provide US$2.5 million in funding to support a climate change program by COMESA, the East African Community (EAC) and the Southern Africa Development Community (SADC). The program is intended to "build and strengthen the capacity of African countries to address adaptation and mitigation to climate change, and to facilitate an African dialogue on the inclusion of sustainable agriculture and land-use practices, forestry, biodiversity conservation, and maintenance of environmental services in the post Kyoto Climate regime."
