dc.description.abstractThe UNFCCC, (2019) identifies climate change as a “threat multiplier” meaning that a sizeable amount of the UNs 17 Sustainable Development Goals are at threat from climate change. The recently published sixth assessment report by the IPCC further highlights that climate change is now at some level an unavoidable reality (IPCC, 2021). Whilst many West African coastal countries have adaptation framework to respond to the threat of climate change, several studies have highlighted an apparent gap in policy implementation, meaning that the policies are not as effective as intended at a grassroots level (Boateng, 2018; Davies-Vollum, Raha, and Koomson, 2021). Aims: 1. To critically analyse the institutional and organisational structure of climate change adaptation (CCA) policies and strategies in West African Coastal Countries. 2. To evaluate socio-cultural or socio-economic issues influencing policy implementation at a grassroots level. 3. To recommend alternative systematic policies or practical processes that could enable successful implementation of climate change adaption plans.
