Africa Climate Week (ACW) 2022 is a regional collaboration platform to explore resilience against climate risks, the transition to a low-emission economy, and partnerships to solve pressing challenges. The event is a key step on the road to the 2022 UN Climate Change Conference (COP 27) in November.
ACW 2022 is hosted by the Government of Gabon. It is organized by the UNFCCC, in collaboration with the UN Development Programme (UNDP), UN Environment Programme (UNEP), and the World Bank Group. Partners in the region include the African Union (AU), the African Development Bank (AfDB) and the UN Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA).
Regional climate weeks engage and empower stakeholders to drive climate action across countries, communities, and economies. Working together opens opportunities to advance climate action, address social inequalities, and invest in development that is good for humanity and nature.
