The Climate Chance Summit – Africa 2018 of Abidjan in the Ivory Coast will serve to bring together non-state climate actors in Africa at the beginning of summer 2018 and primarily to set up sectoral and operational roadmaps adapted to the context in African territories.
The summit will thus serve to establish messages specific to the African continent, to demonstrate its commitment as well as to clarify the specific demands and proposals of the local actors who combat climate change in Africa. The African position will be advocated within the framework of the Talanoa Dialogue process.
The Climate Chance Summit – Africa 2018 will run for two days, 28 and 29 June 2018, in Abidjan – Ivory Coast. The objectives of the summit can be summarised as follows:
- Bringing together non-state African actors from all backgrounds, and taking stock of the progress of non-state climate action in Africa.
- Working on sectoral and operational African roadmaps, establishing a link between climate and development stakes, providing an important position for adaptation stakes of the continent, offering to provide a link between climate funding and local actors, and involving non-state African actors from all backgrounds.
- Working on and delivering common messages, action priorities, commitments, concrete proposals and recommendations from non-state African actors with respect to climate stakes, to be covered during the various events on the international climate agenda, with a focus on funding access.
