"Climate action is not a Global North issue or a Global South issue. It is our collective challenge, and it affects all of us. We need to come together to find common, global solutions." - H.E Kenya's President William Samoei Ruto
Africa is no stranger to the impacts of climate change, with rising temperatures, extreme weather events, and shifting rainfall patterns affecting millions of lives. That's why the inaugural Africa Climate Summit is focused on "addressing the climate crisis with Africa's specific vulnerabilities in mind." This approach means that the policies and solutions discussed are crafted to meet Africa's diverse needs, respecting its distinct ecosystems, economies, and social structures.
With "Driving Green Growth and Climate Finance Solutions for Africa and the World as the main theme, the standout feature of the Africa Climate Summit is its commitment to mobilising investments for climate resilience. The Summit will highlight the importance of "unlocking investment opportunities" for sustainable development across the continent. These investments are pivotal for boosting climate-resilient infrastructure, promoting renewable energy sources, and advancing sustainable agricultural practices.
The participation of both public and private sectors will ensure that a diverse range of projects will receive funding, making Africa more resilient to climate change while fostering economic growth.

In parallel with the African Climate Summit, the regional Africa Climate Week (September 4-8) will offer a space for policymakers, practitioners, businesses, and civil society to engage in dialogue about climate solutions, the challenges that need to be addressed, and the opportunities unfolding in the diverse regions of Africa.
Africa Climate Week will revolve around four key system-based tracks, with the objective of delivering region-specific inputs in the following areas
Energy systems and industry
Cities, urban and rural settlements, infrastructure and transport
Land, ocean, food and water
Societies, health, livelihoods, and economies
By addressing Africa's unique needs and opportunities, these initiatives mark a significant effort toward a more sustainable and resilient future for the continent.
