The African Development Bank (AfDB) in collaboration with members from Nairobi Framework Partnership (NFP) will hold a climate summit in Nairobi in the coming two months.
The meeting that will also mark Africa climate week 2018 (ACW) and advance regional climate action is scheduled to kick off from April9-13.
The ACW2018 meeting aims to support the implementation of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) under the Paris Agreement and climate action to deliver on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The ACW2018 will also be an umbrella for a series of climate-related events focused on NDC implementation, challenges and opportunities, the United Nations SDGs and Global Climate Action.
With Africa Carbon Forum (ACF) a cornerstone event, the focus will be placed on market-based approaches, economic instruments, and climate-aligned finance to drive investment in climate action.
The Nairobi Framework Partnership, following the Paris Agreement, decided to broaden its mandate to cover low carbon and climate resilient development with particular focus on the development of market mechanism.
The Africa Climate week brings together diverse stakeholders in the public and private sectors around a common goal of addressing climate change.
