About Our Aid Data
CCAPS aid data identifies where international aid has been deployed to address climate change vulnerability and build adaptive capacity in Africa. This map includes all types of aid for all donors in the Malawi Aid Management Platform, geocoded and climate-coded through a collaboration between CCAPS, AidData, and the Government of Malawi.

This map also contains World Bank projects across Africa approved from 2008 to 2012, climate-coded by CCAPS. Download the data here.
CCAPS aid research seeks to better define and track aid for climate change adaptation.
- How does CCAPS identify climate-related aid?
- Can better tracking of adaptation aid reduce climate change vulnerabilities on the ground?
- How are aid and conflict related?

About Our Governance Data
CCAPS governance data investigates how national and local institutions affect the ability of a people and a state to respond to drivers of instability. CCAPS analyzes government structures, political processes, budget data, and disaster infrastructure to assess the capacity and resilience of African states. This map includes only national governance indicators embedded within the climate security vulnerability model. CCAPS governance case studies are discussed on the governance research pages here.
CCAPS governance research focuses in three core areas: constitutional design and conflict management, democratic governance, and institutional capacity for natural disasters.
- Can political institutions avert violence from climate change?
- What drives government investment in disaster preparedness?
- Where are the opportunities for building resilience in Nigeria?

About Our Climate Vulnerability Data
CCAPS climate security vulnerability data provides information on four sources of vulnerability: physical exposure to climate-related hazards, population density, household and community resilience, and governance and political violence. Chronic climate security vulnerability is located where these four sources of vulnerability conjoin. View the for the CCAPS climate security vulnerability model. The climate security vulnerability model includes ACLED conflict events; an alternative model without these events is shown here when the model is displayed with an overlay of ACLED events.
CCAPS seeks to identify which parts of Africa are most vulnerable to climate change—and why—at the most detailed scale possible.
- Where are the most vulnerable places in Africa?
- How does CCAPS pinpoint chronically insecure regions?
- How does CCAPS vet the model?
