The African Handbook of Climate Change Adaptation will be open access; immediately available to all to build on knowledge

Springer Nature has announced that theMajor Reference Work African Handbook of Climate Change Adaptation, the most comprehensive publication on climate change adaptation in Africa ever produced, will now be available open access (OA). As the largest publisher of academic books, Springer Nature has brought together over 100 contributions from across Africa with papers prepared by scholars, representatives from social movements, practitioners and members of governmental agencies, undertaking climate change projects in Africa, and working with communities across the African continent.

Initially compiled as a 'Living Reference', the new comprehensive handbook discusses in three volumes current thinking and presents the main issues and challenges associated with climate change in Africa. By being free to read and use for all globally it will enable researchers and policymakers to build on this knowledge straightaway.

This is why we are delighted to support research on the UN's Sustainable Development Goals with this new publication. Thanks to its scope, its wide range of themes and contributors, and the fact that it is now available OA, we believe this book will be a seminal publication on the topic of climate change adaptation and inspire further scientific advancements".
