Climate Chance Summit - Africa 2021

Date: 15-17 September

Sustainable buildings and construction workshop: 17 September

The Climate Chance Africa 2021 Summit aims to bring together the largest community of non-state actors in Africa: local authorities, businesses, NGOs, trade unions, youth organisations, indigenous peoples, women’s organisations, scientists, and representatives of the agricultural community. These are the nine major groups recognised by the UNFCCC that are committed to the fight against climate change and their networks, in relation with national authorities.

This 3rd edition will be held virtually, as the current health context unfortunately does not allow for an event in Africa. It will nevertheless be a strong moment for mobilising actors on the issues of sustainability and the fight against climate change ahead of the COP 26 to be held in Glasgow in November 2021, and knowing that the COP 27 of 2022 will be held on the African continent, in a country yet to be defined.

Don't miss the Sustainable buildings and construction workshop organized in cooperation with the GlobalABC on 17 September, 11:00 - 12:30 UTC! Participants will use this opportunity to develop the current roadmap through the diagnosis of the sector and the pitching of replicable and innovative projects. This workshop will also be the occasion to launch a reflection on the integration of climate and sustainability issues in the UEMOA housing strategy. The work of the sub-groups will be able to enrich this strategy by proposing concrete, sustainable solutions adapted to the African context. Register here for the workshop!
