Welcome to the Africa Climate Exchange

This website, developed by BirdLife International, serves as a one stop shop on information on climate change, mitigation and adaptation in Africa. Using birds and BirdLife's Important Bird Area network as entry points, it demonstrates how biodiversity in Africa is likely to respond to climate change and what can be done. Over 1,600 species distribution maps showing how birds are projected to respond to climate change are available.

The Africa Climate Exchange (ACE) links to various sources of information on climate change in Africa and other parts of the world. A growing Library of over 800 downloadable documents is freely available.

A news feed brings you the best of the latest news on Climate Change in the continent and the world.

This website has proved useful in spurring dialogue and debate on Climate Change issues. ACE can be used by people looking for information on climate change and impacts, as well as experts seeking scientific information. More »
