The United Nations United Nations Economic Commission for Africa in Addis Abba will be hosting the 8th Climate Change and Development in Africa Conference (CCDAVIII) scheduled to take place from August 28-30, 2019, in the premises of the African Union New Building Conference Centre in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
CCDA-VIII is organized under the auspices of ClimDev-Africa consortium a partnership of the African Union Commission (AUC), the African Development Bank (AfDB), and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA), in collaboration with the Pan-African Climate Justice Alliance (PACJA).
The theme for this year’s event is multipronged, as it aims to provide inputs into the Secretary-General Summit on Climate Change scheduled in September this year which will answer two questions from the SG:
(i) how to stop the increase in emissions by 2020 and
(ii) drastically reduce emissions to reach net-zero emissions by 2050?
Six keys areas will be covered: Climate Finance and Carbon Pricing, Energy Transition, Industry transition, Nature-Based Solutions, Infrastructure, Cities and Local Action, Resilience and Adaptation.
Additional key areas of focus will be covered: Mitigation Strategy, Youth Engagement and Public Mobilization, and Social and Political Drivers. CCDAVIII will build on the outcomes of CCDA-VII, which focused on Climate change and development in Africa: policies and actions for effective implementation of the Paris Agreement for resilient economies in Africa.
