Africa Climate Week (ACW) 2022 is a crucial step on the road to COP27 in Egypt. ACW 2022 will be held from 29 August to 2 September in Gabon. Africa Climate Week 2022 will engage and empower stakeholders to drive climate action across countries, communities and economies.
Last year, regional collaboration emerged as a driver of global progress. The Glasgow Climate Pact agreed at COP26 recognizes Regional Climate Weeks as a platform for governments and stakeholders to strengthen credible and durable response to climate change. Working together opens opportunity to advance climate action, address social inequalities and invest in development that is good for humanity and nature. ACW 2022 is a collaboration platform to explore:
- Resilience against climate risks
- The transition to a low-emission economy
- Partnerships to solve pressing challenges
ACW 2022 is hosted by the Government of Gabon. The event is organized by UN Climate Change in collaboration with global partners UN Development Programme, UN Environment Programme and the World Bank Group. Partners in the region include the Africa Union, the Africa Development Bank (AfDB) and the UN Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA).
