Description
Despite its low contribution to greenhouse gas emissions, Africa is the most vulnerable continent to climate change and already the region is experiencing disproportionate impacts. Collaborative research initiatives will play an important role in driving innovation of climate-resilient solutions.

In the run up to the COP26, this event will explore priorities for Africa in the face of the climate crisis and examine the role of research in delivering the necessary solutions to pressing climate change issues on the continent.

Join us to hear some of the leading voices in climate change research, policy and innovation discussing priorities for African countries ahead of COP26 and how the research community can support ambitious action.
