The paper provides a summary of the observed and expected climate change in SADC countries. The observed impacts of global warming and climate change on sectors and the challenges for climate change adaptation and mitigation are discussed to provide a background to the growing need of the SADC region to develop policy strategies in response to climate change. Possible adaptation and mitigation options in different sectors are argued. While adaptation remains a priority for SADC, it is also clear the voluntary mitigation activities can provide benefits to promote regional integration and socio-economic development in the SADC region.
