This dialogue will reflect on the outcomes of COP27 for Africa. It will interrogate how the continent can shift to an alternative development pathway by combining poverty reduction and economic growth with increased resilience to climate change effects. Rather than focusing on Africa’s risks and vulnerabilities, the aim is to approach climate change as an opportunity to transform sectors and unlock new avenues for development.
The workshop will launch the Institute for Security Studies’ (ISS) new report: Africa’s positioning in global climate change negotiations.
The full workshop programme will be available on the ISS website in due course.
