Globally, our financial systems are being fundamentally altered by climate change. According to experts, investors can optimize their impact on the transition to a net-zero economy and increase profits for both people and the environment.
The need for a better understanding of Climate Change and sustainable investment in this sector has led to the Africa and Climate Change Forum – Road map to COP27 being held at Boma Inn Hotel, in Nairobi, Kenya from 21st – 22nd July 2022.
The overall objective of the conference is to address the loopholes facing the mitigation and adaptation in tackling climate change in Kenya and Africa ahead of the 27th session of the Conference of Parties (COP27). COP27 is a historical event in Africa, as the world heads toward the next UN Climate Change Conference, which will take place in November in Sharma El-Sheikh, Egypt – the fourth African country to host the annual event since 1995.
Among the representatives will be from the National Youth Council in partnership with Switch Media, Climate Change experts, decision-makers, climate and social scientists, development economists, policymakers, ambassadors, negotiators, and advocates.
The event will provide a variety of panel discussions, keynote addresses and presentations from keynote speakers.
This forum has emerged as a powerful tool in the fight against climate change, enabling transformative change to safeguard the planet and eco-systems restoration. It presents a great opportunity for Africa’s cooperation and global sharing of experience on climate change mitigation and adaptation.
