AAS Priorities for Climate Change and Development in Africa

Programme Brief


Thursday, 25th June, 2020

In July 2019, the African Academy of Sciences (AAS) in coordination with IPCC Secretariat and the United Nations Institute for Natural Resource in Africa (UN-INRA) convened African scientists and key policy stakeholders to deliberate on climate change  and development in Africa and identify evidence-based

actions to address the issues raised by IPCC SR1.5. The meeting identified priority areas for the AAS to explore

opportunities for enhancing AAS strategic contribution to the regional climate change and development forums in line with major policy frameworks including the AU Agenda 2063, the AAS vision of transformed lives through science and other relevant regional and global frameworks. This document presents the outcome of this meeting which are currently being advanced into a policy paper to further engagement relevant stakeholders.
