Although climate change is a global phenomenon, its impacts are felt at the regional and local levels,  and it is at these levels where actions to adapt to it and mitigate its effects are required. It is therefore crucial that governments and individuals have access to science-based knowledge that is regularly updated and derived from robust data. The State of the  Climate in  Africa report is a  multi-agency report involving key international and continental organizations.  It provides a  snapshot of climate trends,  observed high-impact events, and associated risks and impacts in key sensitive sectors.  The report draws attention to lessons from climate action on the continent, including areas for improvement.
