The African Climate Policy Centre (ACPC) will organise the Third Annual Conference on Climate Change and Development in Africa (CCDA-III) at the UNECA Conference Centre in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia from 21 – 23 October, 2013. The Conference is organized each year under the auspices of the Climate for Development in Africa (ClimDev-Africa) Programme. ClimDev-Africa is a joint programme of key African development institutions including the United Nations Economic Commission (UNECA), the African Union Commission (AUC) and African Development Bank (AfDB). The theme of this year’s Conference is: “Africa on the run: can the opportunities from climate change spring the continent to transformative development?”
The Conference will havefour sub-themes that aim to share experiences and disseminate research results and assess how Africa is coping with impacts of climate change. It will also seek ways of strengthening Africa’s ability to seize opportunities from climate change to better prepare the continent for transformative development.
