Science Plan on Global Environmental Change – ICSU Regional Office for Africa

This document describes the areas of global environmental change research that are of particular importance and interest to Africa.


It describes some of the basic research needed to support cogent decisions, for example to climate change adaptation and mitigation, and to provide reasonable options for the support structure required to facilitate and implement the research. It is not a blueprint or framework for all work on this topic in Africa, but rather a guide as to where the particular strengths of ICSU ROA can be brought to bear on this important issue
