About Our Aid Data
CCAPS aid data identifies where international development resources have 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 mapping tool also contains active World Bank projects across Africa geocoded through the Mapping for Results initiative - a partnership between AidData and the World Bank Institute - and African Development Bank (AfDB) projects approved in 2009-2010, mapped by AidData in partnership with AfDB.
Efforts to track climate change aid have historically been hampered by a lack of consensus on what counts as climate aid and difficulty accessing aid project information. CCAPS and other aid transparency advocates aim to change this.
- 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 in the climate security data. CCAPS governance datasets will be added to this mapping tool in 2013.
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?
- Where are the opportunities for building resilience in Nigeria?

About Our Climate Security 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 data sources for the CCAPS climate security vulnerability model here. The climate security vulnerability model includes ACLED conflict events; an alternative model without these events is used when 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?
- What are the climate security risks in East Africa?
- What are the climate security risks in North Africa?
