The South African Weather Service (SAWS) has developed and released a new Climate Change Reference Atlas for South Africa. The atlas aims to create an accessible climate basis for national and local scale climate change impacts, adaptation and response planning and addresses general assumptions about climate change in a localised, scientific manner. It hopes to contribute in creating a weather and climate resilient society by supporting and informing national and local efforts to reduce the risks posed by global warming, through the Climate Change Response Policy and the development of the National Adaptation Plan (NAP) by the Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA).
