Temperatures in Namibia are set to rise much more rapidly than the global average. At 2°C global warming, the temperature in Namibia will increase by 2.7°C on average across the country. As temperatures rise, the threat of water scarcity will increase for Namibia, with knock-on effects for agriculture, health and the economy.  This means there is an urgent need to accelerate Namibia’s adaptation responses by: 

- Strengthening the ability of communities to respond to projected climate change impacts, through diversifying crops and farming practices, practising soil and water conservation, and training and sharing information. 

 - Integrating climate resilience into rural development efforts in a way that recognises the varying ways that climate change impacts women, men and different social groups. 

- Proactively budgeting for and implementing climate change interventions to enable the country to achieve its international climate change and sustainable development targets - Namibia’s Nationally Determined Contribution under the Paris Agreement and Sustainable Development Goal 13. 

- Ensuring national goals follow a climate compatible development pathway, involving all sectors and levels of government.
