The impacts of climate change in Africa are particularly pronounced in food security and natural resource management. About 80 million people faced acute food insecurity due to extreme weather events. The impacts of climate change pose significant challenges to the continent’s unique and diverse ecosystems, which provide essential services like water regulation, carbon sequestration, and biodiversity conservation. The degradation of these ecosystems affects the communities, especially as many rely on natural resources for their livelihoods.

IFSD aims to engage in comprehensive discourses with diverse stakeholders to gain insights into Africa’s unique climate change challenges. By developing effective solutions, IFSD intends to drive positive outcomes and contribute to a more sustainable and equitable future for the region. We also endeavor to empower communities, safeguard ecosystems, and promote climate resilience. In Africa we focus on water security, loss and damage, food security, and gender inclusion.
