The first African Climate Summit and African Climate Week kick off this Monday in Nairobi, Kenya, with the ministerial segment plenary session.
This plenary session precedes the opening of the high-level ceremony of the African Climate Summit, scheduled for Tuesday, when the Vice President of the Republic, Esperança da Costa, already in Nairobi, will join other heads of state and government and representatives of the African Union (AU).
Angola is participating in the opening plenary session of the ministerial segment, held at the Kenyatta International Convention Center (KICC), with a multisectoral delegation that includes the representative to the United Nations Offices in Nairobi, the African Union, and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA).
The group will discuss, among other things, issues related to expanding high-impact climate financing in Africa, carbon markets for the Southern Hemisphere, investment opportunities for transforming the continent’s food systems, considering its potential in terms of minerals, production, and trade.
According to the agenda, ministers will also address the acceleration of investments in the climate-resilient water sector, a dossier that could lead to climate adaptation investment pacts.
Early warning systems in the climate, peace, security, and mobility fields are also part of the ministerial session’s agenda for the day.
The intergenerational diagnosis with youth in Africa is also on the agenda of priorities.
Under the slogan “Driving Green Growth and Climate Financing Solutions for Africa and the World,” the Forum will also focus on presenting innovative green growth and climate financing solutions in Africa and the world.
To that end, representatives from the African Development Bank (AfDB), the World Bank (WB), and other regional and global partners of this summit will also be joining the collective.
