Climate Chance Summit – Africa 2021

Call for contributions

Calls for projects and best practices in climate action SMDC

Climate Chance, with the support of Codatu and Cetud, launches today a call for contributions of best practices in climate action, at the global level and particularly for the African continent.

We call on you, local actors committed to the fight against climate change in Africa, to share your initiatives, innovations and actions on the continent. This call for proposals mainly aims to identify relevant actors and particularly best practices replicable on a large scale in Africa.

Submit your project and join our global climate action community.

The selected actions will be presented during the Week for Sustainable Mobility and Climate, in Dakar, from September 13 to 17 and/or published on Climate Chance’s Cartography for action, an exclusive tool that lists all climate initiatives carried out by non-state actors worldwide.

By taking part in this campaign ahead of the Climate Chance Summit Africa 2021 in Dakar, you will strengthen the work of African thematic coalitions in key sectors of the fight against climate change and contribute to the deployment of the Climate Chance Cartography for Action highlighting initiatives from the African continent.
