Overview of Adaptation Planning Learning Program
The Adaptation Learning Programme (ALP) for Africa is implemented by CARE International with financial support between 2010 and 2017 from UK Aid from the Department for International Development, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Finland, the Austrian Development Cooperation and the Danish CISU Climate and Environment Fund. An external evaluation in 2015 confirmed ALP is having a positive impact on the lives of those people who are most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change and is an influential programme shaping adaptation practice in Africa and beyond. From 2015 onwards ALP is:
- Innovating approaches for strengthening adaptive capacity, resilience, and gender equality, including access to climate information.
- Demonstrating scaling up of good practice for integrating Community Based Adaptation (CBA) into small-holder agriculture, local development planning and disaster risk reduction (DRR) systems.
- Influencing access and accountability of adaptation finance by national governments, civil society organisations and Africa regional initiatives
- Delivering a strong evidence base of CBA impact and value for money together with learning and training opportunities for multiple actors across Africa
