"This declaration will serve as a basis for Africa's common position in the global climate change process, No country should ever have to choose between development aspirations and climate action."



The inaugural Africa Climate Summit, championed by HE President Ruto, aimed to address the increasing exposure to climate change and its associated costs, both globally and particularly in Africa. With the expectation of escalating climate crises in terms of frequency and intensity, urgent action is required to mitigate these challenges.

The Summit served as a platform to inform, frame, and influence commitments, pledges, and outcomes, ultimately leading to the development of the Nairobi Declaration.

Africa Climate Week 2023

4th to 8th September

Organized in parallel with the African Climate Summit, Africa Climate Week provided a platform for policymakers, practitioners, businesses and civil society to exchange on climate solutions, barriers to overcome and opportunities realized in different regions, leading to the first global stocktake concluding at COP28 in UAE in December of this year.

The Africa Climate Week considered four major systems-based tracks with a view to providing region-focused contributions to inform the global stocktake on:

Energy systems and industry
Cities, urban and rural settlements, infrastructure and transport
Land, ocean, food and water
Societies, health, livelihoods, and economies
