About this book

West Africa is among the most vunerable regions to climate change worldwide. The often disastrous impact variability and extreme events over the past 30 years is a striking illustration and a harbinger of this vunerability. It is therefore urgent that decision makers and the general public in West Africa be fully sensitized on the climatic challenges facing the region and actions to be taken, to enhance the region's level of preparedness in order to cope with predictable impacts of climate variability and change and the associated extreme events.
