Description of the event:

The Climate Chance Summit Africa 2021 took place virtually from 15th – 17th September and welcomed over 2,500 participants from over 70 countries (including 40 African countries), in the aim to create dialogue around major initiatives from the African continent (Great Green Wall, Covenant of Mayors in Sub-saharan Africa, etc), and follow up on sectoral Coalitions of African actors (energy, mobility, building, education, sustainable cities, adaptation and water).

During the ACW side-event, Climate Chance will present the main outcomes of this Summit, with speakers from the City of Dakar, ICLEI Africa and UCLG Africa and showcase some breakthroughs of the African Coalitions and notably the Mobility one with SloCat, OMA, AMUGA, and Transport for Cairo.

This event is crucial for paving the way towards the in-person Climate Chance Summit as part of the Week for Sustainable Mobility and Climate in Dakar, September 2022, and mobilisation of local actors before COP27 which is planned to take place in Africa.
