Climate Safeguards System (CSS)

The African Development Bank (AfDB), under a contract with the Global Climate Adaptation Partnership, is developing a Climate Safeguards System (CSS) as a set of decision-making tools and guides that enable the AfDB to screen projects in vulnerable sectors for climate change risks and identify appropriate adaptation measures to reduce vulnerability. The system delivers on a key objective of the Climate Risk Management and Adaptation strategy (CRMA) and Climate Change Action Plan (CCAP), which is to mainstream climate screening and adaptation in the AfDB projects.

The CSS has 4 modules: Climate Screening, Adaptation Review and Evaluation Procedures, Country Adaptation Factsheets and CSS Information Base.
