dc.description.abstractA new framework developed by the African Climate Policy Center will enable governments to weigh up the economic and social benefits of climate information services against the costs of investment to improve generation and use of these services. The Paris Agreement sets out that average global warming must reach no more than 2°C if the world is to avoid dangerous and irreversible climate change. Yet Africa is already experiencing devastating effects; extreme weather events are increasing at an alarming rate while temperature and rainfall patterns become ever more erratic. In addition, with the world already locked into high levels of emissions, the most severe impacts of climate change are expected to be felt in decades to come.en
