The Working Group II contribution to the IPCC Sixth Assessment Report assesses the impacts of climate change, looking at ecosystems, biodiversity, and human communities at global and regional levels. It also reviews vulnerabilities and the capacities and limits of the natural world and human societies to adapt to climate change. CSAG researchers Chris Lennard (lead author), Olivier Crespo, Luleka Dlamini, Anna Steynor, Lorena Pasquini, and Luckson Zvobgo made a contribution to Chapter 9 (Africa chapter) of the Report which assesses climate change impacts and risks, vulnerability as well as enabling conditions, barriers, and options for adaptation and climate-resilient development in Africa. In comparison to greater degrees of global warming, chapter 9 concluded that limiting global warming to 1.5°C is projected to significantly reduce harms to African economies, agriculture, human health, and ecosystems.
