ABOUT

ICLEI Africa’s Climate Change, Energy and Resilience workstream aims to tackle the climate change crisis in a holistic and systemic fashion, utilising solutions that prioritise the most vulnerable, harness coproduction and multi-level governance, and deploy innovative mechanisms that allow finance to flow to where it is needed most.

Africa is one of the continents least responsible for causing climate change, while bearing a significant burden related to climate change impacts.

This workstream covers:

Climate change mitigation and low emission development

Multi-level governance

Integrated climate change planning

Building coastal resilience

Unlocking climate finance

Sustainable energy access

Clean cooking transitions

Research for sustainable development

Disaster risk reduction

Climate change adaptation and resilience building

Just energy transition

The team

Climate change is a cross-cutting issue that cannot be solved without diverse skills and disciplines, and in light of this, the Climate Change, Energy and Resilience workstream includes engineers, environmental scientists, climate finance experts, researchers, economists and social scientists, who together are driven to enable tangible change that ensures that African cities are at the forefront of the just energy transition, building resilient communities that are able to thrive in the ever-changing world we call home.
