Background: Africa is one of the regions that the impacts of climate change will be felt so much due to poor adaptive capacity and the reliance on agricultural production for human sustainability. While climate change is real in Africa, the continent has been building resilience through adaptation strategies.
Objective: To understand what adaptation strategies African countries have developed in response to and in anticipation of climate change.
Methods: The study reviews documents, reports and projects in the form of grey literature and content analysis was used to analyse these documents manually.
Results: Climate change has mostly affected the agricultural sector thereby reducing agricultural production. This has led to the introduction and implantation of adaptation policies and strategies on the African continent. However, there are barriers militating against adaptation measures.
Conclusion: In building resilience, some adaptation policies and strategies have been initiated mostly at the local levels with the financial support from donor agencies.
Keywords: Adaptation, Africa, Climate change, Grey literature.
