The Africa Learning Forum on Adaptation (ALFA 2017) which took place in Senegal in March 2017 aimed at strengthening the linkages and commitment towards high-quality adaptation programmes and actions, supported by capacity building opportunities, and resulting in long-term climate resilience among Africa’s vulnerable populations. Out of the event, has come the vision:
