Publication Date: 30/06/2016

The Adaptation Learning Programme (ALP) has worked to improve the capacity of vulnerable people and households in sub-Saharan Africa to adapt to climate variability and change. Since 2010, ALP has been working directly with communities in Kenya, Niger, Ghana and Mozambique (Mozambique: 2010 – 2015 only) to identify, develop and refine approaches and strategies that can help build communities adaptive capacity and resilience to climate-related risk – an area known as community-based adaptation (CBA). In total, ALP has received over £11.3 million GBP ($17M USD) since 2010 through the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark (Danida), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Finland, and the Austrian Development Agency (ADA). Since 2015, funds received under the 2-year costed extension are valued at approximately £3M GBP ($4.6M USD) from DFID (75%), ADA (9%) and the Danida financed association Civil Society in Development (CISU) (16%).
