Africa Climate exChange online

By Adrian Long
Africa Climate exChange is 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 will respond to climate change and what can be done. Africa Climate Exchange, developed by BirdLife International, links to news and information on climate change in Africa and other parts of the world, including a growing library of 350 downloadable documents freely available. Maps are available showing the potential impact of climate change on the distribution of more than 1,608 bird species breeding in sub-Saharan Africa.
