New climate programme for Sudan

Following the historic climate deal agreed at COP 21 in Paris, UNEP and the UK Government, through the Department for International Development, are now collaborating on a new £10 million four-year climate change adaptation programme for Sudan.


Adapt for Environment and Climate Resilience in Sudan or ‘ADAPT!’ aims to respond to the call by world leaders in Paris to collectively address the urgent challenges posed by climate change - particularly in countries expected to be hit hardest.


Sudan, considered a least developed country, is on the frontline when it comes to the likely impacts of climate change. Temperatures are expected to rise, rainfall will become more unpredictable, droughts and floods will become more severe, and precious water resources will become ever more stretched. Sudan also faces structural challenges, including weak environmental governance following decades of conflict.


Working in close partnership with Government Ministries, UN, agencies, NGOs, academia and donors, ADAPT aims to increase climate resilience and environmental management in Sudan in several ways. Firstly, by integrating best practice on climate and environmental issues into project delivery. Secondly, by deepening and broadening the knowledge and evidence base to promote climate smart planning, and finally by improving policy processes and strategic planning.


The programme will support the African country to take forward its COP21 Intended Nationally Determined Contributions commitment and attract global climate funds to support adaptation.


By leveraging strategic partnerships and ensuring that responses are underpinned by sound science and best practices, ADAPT will play an important role in helping the people of Sudan cope with the inevitable environmental, political, economic and social stresses caused by climate change.
