The Africa Climate Week 2020 (ACW) will convene in Kampala, Uganda, 9-13 March 2020. This year’s ACW will take place under the banner “Partnering for transformation towards a low-carbon climate resilient and prosperous Africa: managing risks, seizing opportunities.”

ACW 2020 is an opportunity to move forward on crucial climate action work at a national and regional level, taking regional priorities into consideration. The event is designed to mobilize and enhance the required partnerships and collaborative approaches needed to facilitate NDC implementation and help deliver on the SDGs.

The central objective of Africa Climate Week is to share ways for governments to implement the Paris Agreement in Africa, making use of all the planning tools and support available. Against this background, the Collaborative Climate Action approach and its potential for higher NDC ambition are of pivotal role and are highly resonant with the rationale of ACW2020.
