Reframing Climate Action: Towards a more inclusive and sustainable future

May 12, 2022 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

As the window rapidly closes to securing a livable future for humans and nature, communities in developing countries are both among the most susceptible to the effects of climate change and face some of the greatest hurdles in mitigating further global warming.

Yet there is also an unprecedented opportunity to accelerate global climate action by pursuing inclusive, sustainable climate initiatives – led and anchored in the developing world.

Join Aga Khan Foundation Canada (AKFC) for an intimate discussion on shifting the climate narrative in developing countries from vulnerability to opportunity by advancing climate initiatives aimed at addressing social inequalities, restoring ecosystems and building resilience to climate change.

James Mwangi, Founder of the Climate Action Platform Africa (CAP-A), will offer perspectives on critical considerations around partnering with local communities and ensuring climate initiatives deliver GHG reductions, uphold human rights and advance gender equality.

Key topics to explore:

  • Africa’s role in accelerating global climate action by pursuing inclusive, sustainable climate initiatives.
  • Addressing the opportunity for Africa to transition to an inclusive green economy.
  • Climate initiatives as a catalyst for employment.
  • Income-generating opportunities across society in sectors such as renewable energy, climate-resilient agriculture, and the blue economy.
