The first Africa Climate Summit was held in Nairobi, Kenya, in the week of 4 September 2023.

The main objective was to enable the continent to find a common language on development and climate in order to "propose African solutions" in the run-up to COP28, to be held at the end of the year in Dubai.


La semaine du 4 septembre 2023 a vu le premier « Sommet africain sur le climat », Sommet africain sur le climat, tenu à Nairobi, au Kenya.


But before then, several key international meetings will be important milestones in this fight, including the G20 summit in India and the United Nations General Assembly in September, followed by the annual meeting of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund in Marrakech in October.

Home to 1.2 billion people in 54 countries, Africa is politically and economically diverse, and has some of the most vulnerable populations to climate change.

However, these countries need to highlight Africa's potential as a green industrial power and call on the international community to release the money earmarked for the continent.


L'objectif principal était de permettre au continent de trouver un langage commun sur le développement et le climat afin de "proposer des solutions africaines" à l'approche de la COP28, qui se tiendra en fin d'année à Dubaï.
