Date: 11-12 June
Venue: Lomé (Togo) & online
Organized by UCLG Africa and CoM SSA and in a hybrid format, this meeting aims to examine the conditions to be fulfilled to increase climate investment within the local authorities of the WAEMU space. It will specifically address the common problems faced by authorities in charge of managing local and regional governments in the field of Climate Action. It will explore concrete mechanisms to facilitate the access of these authorities to climate finance, in particular to the Green Climate Fund, within the framework of the Territorialisation of NDCs in Africa. The forum will also serve as a framework for the workshop to launch the national support process for the signatory cities of the CoM SSA in Togo.
It will be attended by WAEMU, WADB, EBID, UNDP, the European Union and National Associations of Local Authorities in West Africa.
Translation will be available for all sessions in English and French.
