OUR OBJECTIVES

A strong and inclusive African movement that has mobilized citizens, companies, and governments to advance climate justice. This objective will be achieved through five key outcomes.

  • Amplified voices of those disproportionately affected by the changing climate, and that offer solutions for a more sustainable future, such as women, youth, and local and Indigenous communities
  • Developed African narratives that highlight lived experiences of women, youth and local and Indigenous communities impacted by climate change, to change the terms of the debate
  • Empowered citizens and communities that claim and defend their social and environmental rights
  • Scoping and scaling of community-based best practices on adaptive capacities of climate frontline communities
  • Policy and practice change that support affected communities and enable the transition to sustainable, low-carbon economies, leaving no one behind.
