    Crown Capital Management Climate Concerns: Africa Climate Change

    Climate change is one of the defining issues of our time, and Africa is the most vulnerable continent to its impact. A crucial determinant of the continent's future is how well adaptation strategies are developed and implemented throughout the region. Adaptation is knowledge intensive, and there is an urgent need for improved access to relevant and usable knowledge to support new initiatives.

     

    The growing awareness of the impact of climate change has resulted in a large number of agencies, organisations, research institutes, and political bodies seeking to understand the patterns of vulnerability and how to adapt. While much information exists on successfully adapting to climate change's effects, it is often fragmented and difficult to access for those who need it. In African countries, there are still significant barriers and constraints to adaptation efforts.

     

    The gaps in knowledge include how to conduct climate change impact assessment and vulnerability analysis, finding and implementing suitable policies and plans for improved resilience, experimenting through pilot projects, demonstration of successful initiatives, full scale implementation, and monitoring and evaluation of adaptation strategies that have been undertaken.

    Re: Crown Capital Management Climate Concerns: Africa Climate Change

    Question on climate change.

    Africa has been going through climate change for well over 5000 yrs as the Sahara used to be a vast area of water and vegetation and aquatic animals. That is a fact.

    Over the past 30 years we have reduced and removed many items that scientists thought were creating at the time Global Warming now known as climate change. We also know that parts of the world like the Sahara were not always what they currently are now. I will not say man does not have some effect on climate change. We know that climate change has occurred on our plant well before man was around in any great numbers. We know that the earth has gone through many changes in it's history.

    However based upon the above how can anyone say definitely that Global waring/climate change is caused by man?

    They know why the northern African climate changed.  It changed because of continental drift which physically changed where nothern Africa was located relative the the equator.  Continental drift also led to the development of the himalayan mountains, which changed weather patterns affecting the climate around northen africa.


    The same science used to explain how Northern Africa went from rain forest to desert is now saying that climate change is caused by man.


    They can measure the amount of carbon in the atmosphere and how the amount has changed over time going back thousands of years.  They know the effect of carbon in the atmosphere on the planet.  They can identify the source (in broad terms) of the carbon.  They've concluded that the planet is getting warmer due to an increase the level of carbon (carbon dioxide) in the atmosphere and the increase in carbin is from man made sources.  Without the manmade made carbon in the atmosphere, the planet would be going through a cooling period.
