The CCAPS mapping tool enables researchers and policymakers to visualize data on climate change vulnerability, conflict, governance, and aid, and to analyze how these issues intersect in Africa. The mapping tool, built in partnership with Development Gateway, allows users to select and layer any combination of CCAPS data onto one map to assess how myriad climate change impacts and responses intersect. By integrating the various lines of CCAPS research, as well as other existing datasets, the CCAPS mapping tool aims to provide the most comprehensive view yet of climate change and security in Africa. The mapping tool user guide is available here.
CCAPS is also producing data dashboards for several thematic areas under study, including climate, conflict, and aid. The dashboards bring together mapping, trends analysis, tabular data displays, and data downloads for a comprehensive view of each issue.
The CCAPS conflict dashboard allows users to analyze conflict by actor, event type, issue, intensity, and a range of other conflict dynamics. It includes two innovative conflict datasets supported by CCAPS: the Social Conflict in Africa Database (SCAD) provides the first systematic tracking of a broad range of social and political unrest in Africa, and the Armed Conflict Location and Event Dataset (ACLED) provides near real-time tracking of political conflict in Africa. The conflict dashboard user guide is available here
The CCAPS aid dashboard includes geocoded aid data from CCAPS and several partner institutions. CCAPS and AidData built the dashboard to combine trends analysis with the most comprehensive collection of geocoded data on aid projects in Africa. The aid dashboard includes two aid datasets: CCAPS' new climate-coded aid data for Malawi geocoded in partnership with AidData; and CCAPS' new climate-coded aid data for all World Bank projects in Africa approved from 2008 to 2012. The aid dashboard user guide is available here
The CCAPS Climate Security Vulnerability Model can be explored on this tabbed dashboard explaining how the model is built. The dashboard explains the model's four baskets (physical exposure to climate related hazards, population density, household and community resilience, and governance and political violence) that capture the salient sources of vulnerability, and it shows how these baskets are used in the model to create a composite index.
