Abstract: There is growing evidence that many developing countries in sub-saharan Africa are experiencing climate disasters that threaten the well-being of people and the environment. The resulting climate shocks and environmental changes are adversely impacting the economic livelihoods, health and water and food security of the region’s most vulnerable populations. There is therefore great need to educate, finance and scale up climate resilience projects in Africa through multi-stakeholder partnerships. Multi-stakeholder partnerships are increasingly being utilized by universities and various institutions for educating communities, pooling the economic and technical resources needed to finance and scale up innovative climate resilience projects in developing countries in Africa. This study examines some innovative climate resilience projects being carried out by universities and various other educational institutions through multi-stake holder partnerships in Africa. It further recommends the need for more intense research by various universities in Africa and climate change education across communities and institutions in Africa in order to achieve sustainable development nationally, regionally and globally.
