African Union 2023 Climate Action Innovators Hub At The Africa Climate Summit

African Union’s Climate Change and Resilient Development Strategy and Action Plan (2022-2032) is Africa’s first collective climate change action plan and strategy that details specific suggested actions the continent needs to urgently undertake to respond to climate change. The Strategy seeks to harmonise the continent’s response to climate change over the next decade, setting out the key guiding principles, priorities, and intervention areas for enhanced climate cooperation. This Strategy is the framework for climate action of all Africans, including both government and non-government stakeholders. For the Strategy to be effectively implemented, broad-based ownership and inclusive participation is vital. 

The African Union Commission will host a Climate Action Innovation Hub at the upcoming Africa Climate Summit, taking place 4-6 September 2023 in Nairobi, Kenya. This Climate Action Innovation Hub will provide an opportunity to showcase a diverse range of the bold, innovative climate actions, lead by women and youth, that are taking place across the continent that align and operationalise specific ambitions and goals of the Africa Climate Change Strategy.
