African Climate Risks Conference 2019
The ACRC will offer a prime opportunity to promote the uptake of new data, tools and knowledge; brokering new research collaborations and more targeted donor support. It will also stimulate increased contribution of African experts to, and improve coverage of Africa, in the IPCC assessment reports; and bring together development partners to deliberate on how to improve programming to support African-led climate research and service priorities. The overarching theme of the ACRC is: “Dismantling barriers to urgent climate change adaptation actions.”
The conference aims to:
- Disseminate results and share insights from new and on-going climate science and adaptation research in Africa;
- Provide a forum to co-identify common priorities in the African climate research for development through African-led collective discussions;
- Contribute to efforts to address barriers to more effective use of climate information to ensure greater impact and legacy of on-going research programmes by promoting the uptake of new data, tools and knowledge within planning and decision-making processes; and
- Link researchers and the diversity of other actors important for moving research into policy and practice: decision-makers, national meteorological agencies, knowledge brokers, donors, NGOs, etc.
