Kenya to host African Climate Week in April 

NAIROBI (Xinhua) -- Kenya will in April host the inaugural Africa Climate Week to explore new mechanisms to revitalize the continent’s green agenda, organizers said on Monday.

The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) which will organize the five-day event said it will inject vitality into Africa’s quest for low-carbon development.

“To meet the goals of the Paris Agreement, we need to scale up global climate action and ambition across sectors, public and private,” said Patricia Espinosa, Executive Secretary of the UNFCCC.

“Africa Climate Week can be an important means to drive that action and ambition,” she added.

Delegates representing governments, corporations, academia and civil society will participate in the summit that will be held against a backdrop of global efforts to cut down on greenhouse gas emissions that are to blame for global warming.

Organizers said the first climate week to be held on the African soil will rally stakeholders to support market-based approaches to reduce carbon emissions in line with the Paris climate agreement of 2015.
