Fourth Africa Climate Talks: First Session

The fourth edition of Africa Climate Talks (ACT!) will convene in two parts. The first session, meeting for the Eastern and Southern Africa subregions in Maputo, Mozambique, in a hybrid format will focus on the theme, ‘Ensuring a Just and Equitable Transition and Human Security in Africa: Building Resilience.’ It will cover disaster preparedness, early warning systems, insights from the Sixth Assessment Report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), just transition, resilience building, and the global stocktake on adaptation. The all-inclusive forum aims to identify pathways to climate-resilient development, thus contributing to the realization of Africa’s Agenda 2063 and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

It is co-hosted by the UN Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) and Eduardo Mondlane University, with the participation of UN agencies, the African Union Commission (AUC), the African Development Bank (AfDB), and the Pan-African Climate Justice Alliance (PACJA), among others.

The second session, for the Central, Western, and Northern Africa subregions, will convene in Niger. Together, the two sessions seek to inform the Tenth Conference on Climate Change and Development in Africa (CCDA-X) and the UN Climate Change Conference (UNFCCC COP 27).
