Africa Climate Week (ACW) 2023 is a regional collaboration platform to provide region-focused contributions on: energy systems and industry; cities, urban and rural settlements, infrastructure, and transport; land, ocean, food, and water; societies, health, and livelihoods; and economies. Regional discussions on these topics will inform the first global stocktake (GST), which will conclude at the 2023 UN Climate Change Conference (COP 28) in November.
ACW 2023 is hosted by the Government of Kenya. It is organized by UNFCCC, in collaboration with the UN Development Programme (UNDP), UN Environment Programme (UNEP), and the World Bank Group. Partners in the region include the African Union (AU), the African Development Bank (AfDB), and the UN Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA). The event will be organized in parallel with the Africa Climate Summit.
Regional climate weeks engage and empower stakeholders to exchange views on climate solutions and discuss opportunities to overcome barriers and realize opportunities in different regions.
