PACJA

Pan African Climate Justice Alliance, PACJA, a coalition of more than 500 civil society organizations and networks from 45 countries in Africa in partnership with Oxfam hosted in Dakar, Senegal, civil society groups from 40 countries in Africa to reflect on the outcome of the UN conference held in Warsaw, Poland late last year.

Secretary General of PACJA, Mithika Mwenda noted that this conference will povide an opportunity for interaction and exchange of views after a long holiday.”It remains the  mandate of PACJA to provide an enabling environment for African civil society to share experiences and network so as to effectively contribute to the national and international climate change debates”, continued Mwenda.

Oxfam Pan African Programme Officer for Economic Justice, Lamine Ndiaye urged African CSO’s to remain stedfast in lobbying governments to ensure pro-poor climate responses to enable vulnerable communities to build resilience and adapt to the growing impacts of climate change.” This meeting organised by PACJA puts into action what was agreed on in Warsaw when we walked out of negotiations protesting inaction by world leaders”, he said.

Some of the issues to be discussed are strategies to strengthen coherence among civil society concerning calls and demands centred around priority issues emerging from international climate change negotiation processes. Participants will agree on a mechanism for regular communication, sustained coordination and implementation of activities pending the next conference which will hold in Peru later this year.
