The Africa Climate Week (ACW) 2021 is accelerating collaboration and integrating climate action into global pandemic recovery. Building back opens an opportunity to address social inequalities and invest in economic development that is good for humanity and nature.
The ACW 2021 Virtual Thematic Sessions take the pulse of climate action in the region, explore climate challenges and opportunities, and showcase ambitious solutions. These session focus on priorities identified earlier in the year at the Virtual Regional Roundtables and the outcomes will be carried forward to the Ministerial Sessions later this year. This is an opportunity for regional stakeholders to have their voice heard and contribute to COP 26.
The organizing partners (UNEP, UNFCCC, UNDP, World Bank) will soon open applications from organizations interested in supporting the Thematic Tracks, delivering Side Events and participating in the Action Hub. Each track focuses on one theme and runs for four hours each day of the event. The three tracks of Africa Climate Week are:
- National actions and economy-wide approaches (organizing partner: World Bank)
- Integrated approaches for climate-resilient development (organizing partner: UNDP)
- Seizing transformation opportunities (organizing partner: UNEP)
The Africa Climate Week thematic sessions are scheduled for 26-29 July and will be hosted by the Government of Uganda.
