The African Climate Risks Conference 2019 (ACRC2019) will convene under the theme, ‘Dismantling Barriers to Urgent Climate Adaptation Action’. The conferences aims to:
- Disseminate results and share insights from new and ongoing climate science and adaptation research in Africa;
- Provide a forum to identify common priorities in African climate research for development through African-led discussions;
- Contribute to efforts to ensure greater impact and legacy of ongoing research programmes by promoting the uptake of new data, tools and knowledge within planning and decision-making processes; and
- Link researchers and other actors instrumental in moving research into policy and practice such as decision makers, national meteorological agencies, knowledge brokers, donors, non-governmental organizations and other stakeholders.
The event is hosted by the Future Climate For Africa (FCFA).
