Smallholder farmers, pastoralists, the urban poor, and other vulnerable groups in Africa, are already paying a disproportionate share of the cost for accelerated climate change. Addressing their needs while protecting Africa's rich biodiversity is too daunting a challenge for individual projects, programmes, or even governments. Against the backdrop of a global pandemic that has further deepened inequalities, "and risks sending over 70 million people into extreme poverty," international partnerships have an important role to play.
Building on preceding discussions that highlighted the importance of the progressive realisation of the right to food to achieve climate resilience, this event will bring together speakers from the human rights, climate, research, and development cooperation sectors to further explore how international partnerships can help galvanise more inclusive climate governance at the national and sub-national levels in Africa.
The Earth Negotiations Bulletin of the IISD will provide web coverage of the event.
