The Climate Chance Association and the Assembly of Regions and Districts of Ivory Coast (ARDCI) are co-organising a regional Summit dedicated to Climate Action in Africa: the Climate Chance Summit Africa 2018, which will be held from 28 – 29 June 2018 in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire.
During a meeting in Abidjan of a steering committee convening organisers and partners, the Summit was officially announced by Ronan Dantec, French Senator and president of the Climate Chance Association, and Vincent Kouaoh N’cho, Deputy Governor of the District of Abidjan, representing Jeannot Ahoussou Kouadio, Former Prime Minister, President of the ARDCI.
The event aims to convene a broad gathering of non-state actors from all over Africa (local governments, companies, NGOs, unions, youth organisations, indigenous peoples, women, the scientific community, etc.), key groups of the UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) committed to combating climate change as well as their associated networks.
This summit aims to share and support action geared towards fighting climate change in Africa, through actor coalitions brought together in 10 thematic workshops which will highlight good practices (exemplary and inspirational climate action projects) and define sectoral and operational roadmaps adapted to the context in African territories.
More information about the summit will follow shortly (registration, programme etc.)
