aims to harness the EU climate services landscape and leverage it with local knowledge from African case studies to co-create information and facilitate its uptake at the local to district and regional levels. It will advance on the uptake of user-centred climate services in three carefully selected vulnerable regions across Africa, strengthening and expediting adaptation and resilience in those regions.

Climate resilience and adaptation measures can help prevent migration to cities in Africa by ensuring that communities are better equipped to cope with the impacts of climate change, such as droughts, floods, and other extreme weather events, while ensuring food security is enhanced with associated policies.

Our specific objectives will be:

Establish a collaborative, co-creation and engagement platform

for the prioritization and co-development of needs-based climate information services to tackle issues related to migration, food security and climate resilience within rural-urban continuum in sub-Saharan Africa.

Identify adaptation challenges, requirements, enabling and hindering factors in adapting

to the wider socio-economic environment, while ensuring alignment with policy goals (such as safeguarding biodiversity, boosting agricultural output, lessening disparities) that can be met with demand-driven and user-centred services.

Explore and harness existing climate services and develop new suite of user-centred state-of-the-art climate services (for foodsheds, hydro-meteorological disaster and ecosystem management)

that can be bundled together (new and existing) leveraging opportunities with digital revolution including artificial intelligence, automation, high mobile network penetration and sensors to improve diffusion of climate knowledge and promote more efficient service delivery at local and regional levels.

Tailor the services and tools in SO3 to local policy contexts

for each SAFE4ALL country and support the integration of the services within the local adaptation processes and communication platforms using storytelling maps to create actionable and inspiring results for climate adaptation to accelerate the attainment of the SDGs.

Sustain, scale up and scale out bundled climate services

through capacity mobilization, communication and dissemination to help communities understand the risks of climate change and develop strategies to adapt and increase their resilience. Through the Resilient Cities Network, Seven (7) municipalities (or counties) and eight (8) African cities will be informed and benefited.

Recommend and implement sustainable business models

for the services deployed in the co-creation cases (LivingLabs) in the SAFE4ALL countries, based upon successful examples elsewhere. In addition, key factors that drive the demand for services are defined.

Foster multi- and interdisciplinary links and collaborations

through partnerships across Europe and Africa promoting better targeting of investments and programs to accelerate the attainment of SDG17.
