AfriAlliance will be co-hosting the side event “Climate action, land, and the Nexus” at COP24 in Katowice, Poland.
AfriAlliance invited stakeholders, within and outside Africa, to help shape the AfriAlliance Strategic Research & Innovation Advice (SRIA) for water and climate in Africa in order to strengthen the preparedness of the water sector in Africa to adapt to climate change. The aim of the SRIA is to provide insight into what research, innovation and new knowledge are required to strengthen the preparedness of the water sector in Africa for water-related challenges arising from climate change.
During the COP24 in Poland (United Nations Climate Change Conference – cop24.gov.pl), AfriAlliance will hold a joint side event at the EC Pavilion, during which we will be discussing the SIRA on Water and Climate in Africa. The panel will feature African stakeholders at the Nexus and encourage discussion on what research and new knowledge are required in the long run in order to strengthen preparedness of the water sector in Africa for the impacts of climate change.
Join us at the European Commission Pavillion Area E, 18:00 – 20:00 on Thursday, 13 December for a lively discussion, followed by drinks!
