Share the Harvest with the Africa Climate Action Initiative!
The Africa Climate Action Initiative (ACAI) is an initiative of the Canada Africa Partnership (CAP) Network that works alongside African communities on the front lines of climate change to adapt, mitigate and build resilience.
Africa is the continent the most vulnerable to climate change, despite accounting for under 4 percent of the world’s carbon dioxide emissions. Climate change acts as a threat multiplier to existing challenges, including food insecurity, water scarcity, waterborne diseases, governance challenges and conflicts across the continent.
Hundreds of millions of people are being impacted. 70 percent of the total African population depends on agriculture, with 95 percent of this food production relying on rainfall. Increasingly uncertain rainfall and extreme weather patterns are having severe ramifications for food security, poverty eradication, and the achievement and maintenance of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
We believe Africa has the resources it needs to confront these challenges and lead the way towards a healthy and regenerative future. ACAI supports the advancement of climate-smart projects and programmes across the continent.
Check back to see whether ACAI is hosting an event for Shared Harvest this fall.
