Organisation of the themed workshops

These workshops will be the occasion to gather the subnational and non-state actors in their diversity in order to :

  • Present 2 or 3 good inspiring practices from the call for proposals launched during the Africa Climate Week.
  • Do the follow-up (evaluation after a year) on the sectoral road maps that were defined during the first edition of the Climate Chance Summit Africa 2018

Each workshop should lead collectively to the development of the sectoral and operational roadmaps, that are meant to create a favorable environment to action, to spread the strategic information and to reinforce the climate action in Africa. It would be thus important to take stock at the defined objectives in each road map, and at the indicators of the action’s advancement, etc
