Fifth Conference on Climate Change and Development in Africa
The transition to a post-Kyoto climate governance framework is an opportune moment to engage the African continent and the world in such a review. The upcoming COP21 in Paris in December 2015 is expected to deliver the new climate agreement, which will define global climate governance in the post Kyoto period. COP21 represents a unique chance for Africa to assert itself in global climate governance and influence the outcomes of Paris towards aligning with the continent’s long term sustainable development agenda. The Conference will in addition seek to contribute to the refinement of the African common position in advance of COP21.
