The fight against climate change needs the contribution and commitment of all actors. Since 2015, Climate Chance is the only international organisation seeking to bring together all non-state actors recognised by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC): local authorities, businesses and civil society. Climate Chance seeks to link the three dynamics of the United Nations Conventions on the Environment (Biodiversity, Climate, Desertification) and launched recently an initiative on biodiversity: an international coalition on biodiversity corridors in Africa.
BRING TOGETHER NON-STATE ACTORS
Since 2015, the organisation of annual Summits has been the DNA of the organisation. The Climate Chance Summits are the moment of convergence of our community and are the opportunity to bring out common priorities and proposals during the major events of the climate agenda, in particular the COPs. 7annual international Climate Chance Summits in Europe and Africa, (Lyon, Nantes, Agadir, Abidjan, Accra, Dakar). The largest and most representative gatherings of non-state climate actors on the African continent, with up to 5,000 participants of 80 nationalities. And throughout the year, the eMag of climate action in Africa, a monthly meeting to spread and share information dedicated to the Climate Chance’s multi-actor Coalitions.
