Africa Toolkit

The IPCC has produced the most comprehensive assessment of climate change ever. The Fifth Assessment Report (AR5), is the work of 830 expert authors from 85 countries and its first three volumes already stretch to 5,000+ pages. Now, the Climate and Development Knowledge Network and the Overseas Development Institute have released a succinct guide to the assessment for decision-makers in Africa.

Africa AR5 Toolkit

Alongside the What’s in it for Africa report, CDKN presents a ‘Media Toolkit’, a bundle of resources freely available for training, educational and reporting purposes, to encourage understanding of the report worldwide.
