Kenyatta International Convention Centre
Hosted by the Government of Kenya, the Africa Climate Week 2023 (ACW 2023) will take place from 4 to 8 September 2023 in Nairobi, Kenya.
The event is being organized in parallel with the Africa Climate Summit (4-6 September), which is hosted by the Government of Kenya and the African Union Commission.
ACW 2023 is a crucial event for the region, serving as a platform for policymakers, practitioners, businesses, and civil society to come together to address the pressing issues of climate change and foster collaborations to build a sustainable future.
ACW will help gather region-specific contributions to inform the first-ever Global Stocktake scheduled to conclude at COP28 in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in December of this year. Africa's role in providing climate solutions brings valuable insights to this Stocktake, presenting a unique opportunity to advocate for decisive change on a global scale.
In addition to the high-level segment of both the ACW and ACS, which will welcome Heads of State and other dignitaries, discussions will be organized into four systems-based tracks, each focusing on specific themes:
- Energy systems and industry
- Cities, urban and rural settlements, infrastructure and transport
- Land, ocean, food and water
- Societies, health, livelihoods, and economies
ACW 2023 is organized by the UNFCCC Secretariat in collaboration with UNDP, UNEP, and the World Bank, as well as regional partners including the African Union, the African Development Bank (AfDB), and the UN Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA).
