rwanda ABOUT THE EVENT

GCCA+ REGIONAL CONFERENCE

 

The GCCA+ will host a regional climate change conference in Kigali, Rwanda, on 15-18 October 2019, bringing together climate change project managers, policy experts and decision makers and adaptation and ecosystem based approaches, landscapes, NDCs and climate finance.

 

 

Seventy per cent of Africa’s 1.2 billion citizens derive their livelihoods from agriculture. Africa’s geographic position and high climate vulnerability compounded by low adaptive capacity in most African countries threatens agricultural production and food security across the continent. In some countries, the undervaluation of natural resources and ecosystem-based services is resulting in their misallocation and depletion, and the loss of income and taxes impacting the livelihoods of current and future generations. Fast growing populations, high youth unemployment, and rapid rural-urban migration trends are leading to growing energy demands and rapidly increasing greenhouse gas emissions from key sectors including transport and waste. In terms of climate finance, 14% of the world’s population living in sub-Saharan Africa access only 3% of global climate finance flows.  And yet a growing cohort of finance and development experts argue that Africa represents a US 3 trillion investment opportunity by 2030.
 
The conference will host a High level opening  by the Minister of Environment of Rwanda, and will be organised with the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED).
