Race to Zero Campaign
Race To Zero is a global campaign to rally leadership and support from businesses, cities, regions, investors for a healthy, resilient, zero carbon recovery that prevents future threats, creates decent jobs, and unlocks inclusive, sustainable growth. It mobilizes a coalition of leading net zero initiatives, representing 452 cities, 22 regions, 1,101 businesses, 45 of the biggest investors, and 549 universities. These ‘real economy’ actors join 120 countries in the largest ever alliance committed to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050 at the latest.
Climate Chance’s dialogue on Monday 9th November from 14:00 – 16:00 (GMT) : “Post-crisis lessons from the African Coalitions of Climate Chance”
Given the COVID-19 crisis, in order to keep the momentum leading up to COP26, Climate Chance organized a Series of weekly Virtual Workshops with our African Coalitions on adaptation, agriculture, energy, circular economy, building, climate finance, sustainable cities, education and mobility. Each of these coalitions have their own roadmaps, which aim to reduce overall GHG emissions of their sectors, by gathering different kinds of actors (local authorities, businesses, associations, etc.), sharing knowledge and best practices, but also capacity building and access to funds opportunities.
Climate Chance has organized this interactive Dialogue to summarize outcomes and key learnings of these Virtual Workshops, and discuss how the coalitions responded to the COVID-19 outbreak and related crises, and implications for climate, sustainability and resilience, particularly in the African context.
