Gabon will host Africa Climate Week 2022
Africa Climate Week (ACW 2022) will take place in Libreville, Gabon. It is a platform for stakeholders to discuss regional climate action solutions and forge regional partnerships. It is also an important step on the road to the UN Climate Change Conference COP27 in Egypt in November.
The meeting will bring together stakeholders for regional collaboration, opening space to address shared risks and seize shared opportunities. By working together, governments, private sector leaders, development organizations, youth and civil society can find common ground and act with common purpose. The Climate Week will also feature an Action Hub to share action happening now to reduce climate impacts and build resilient communities.
ACW 2022 is hosted by the Government of Gabon and organized by UN Climate Change in collaboration with global partners UN Development Programme, UN Environment Programme and the World Bank Group. Partners in the region include the Africa Union, the Africa Development Bank (AfDB) and the UN Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA)
