Cleanbuild.africa in collaboration with Creative Space and Innovation Support Network is hosting a climate action stakeholders’ forum that will bring to fore some of the pertinent issues around cleantech and climate change in the context of Africa.

According to the Global Environment Facility, beyond SDG 13: Climate Action, a deliberate transformation to low-emission, climate-resilient pathways can contribute to achieving and preserving the other related SDGs namely; Zero Hunger (SDG 2), Affordable and Clean Energy (SDG 7), Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure (SDG 9), Sustainable Cities and Communities (SDG 11), Responsible Consumption and Production (SDG 12), Life Below Water (SDG 14) and Life on Land (SDG 15).

What this means is that all the sustainable goals can best be achieved collectively rather than in isolation. As such, climate action requires joint efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, leveraging modern technologies while strengthening resilience and adaptive capacity to climate-induced impacts.

It is even more critical for African countries to achieve these goals because the continent is disproportionately vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, which compromises its development and threatens the livelihoods of millions of Africans.

This climate-focused virtual event with the theme “Building a Sustainable Climate Action Ecosystem”, will be held on Friday, October 8, 2021. It aims to assemble cleantech startups and advocates, stakeholders, policymakers, investors and other major players across all climate verticals ranging from Greentech innovations, renewable energy, pollution & waste management, and sustainability, among others.
