Climate Chance is delighted to announce the dates and location of the upcoming Climate Chance Summit Africa - 2020 which will be hosted by the City of Kigali, Rwanda from the 14th to the 16th of September.
Climate Chance and its partners
The Climate Chance Summit Africa 2020 will be co-organised with ICLEI Africa who, alongside the Summit, will be hosting their « Local Climate Solutions for Africa Congress » event. Climate Chance will also be working with many partners including RALGA (Rwanda Association for Local Governments Authorities), UCLG-A (United Cities and Local Governments - Africa), CEMR (Council of European Municipalities and Regions), C40, CoMSSA (Covenant of Mayors of Sub-Saharan Africa) and more to form attractive and plentiful programme content aimed to inspire local climate action across the African continent.
A moment for the coalition members to gather and collectively find solutions
9 thematic workshops for each African coalition will take place in order to guarantee a zone dedicated to networking, the sharing of good practices and the exchange of skills and knowledge related to 9 major climate-related topics which are :
Access to climate finance
Sustainable cities and urban development
Agriculture, food and reforestation
Renewable energy and energy efficiency
Sustainable mobility and transport
Adaptation and water
Sustainable buildings and construction
Education and training on climate change
Members of the African Coalitions as well as curious participants are invited to take part in these workshops. Another important part of these workshops includes the refining of each coalitions’ roadmaps, the aim being to come up with more concrete solutions facing “how” the coalitions can work together to reach the objectives of the coalition (as defined in their roadmaps since 2018).
