The fight against global warming, the sustainable use of resources and adaptation, and mitigation of climate-related risks and disasters are among the greatest challenges facing the world today. Multilateralism and international diplomacy are key to finding solutions to these global tasks.Within this context, the Regional Programme Energy Security and Climate Change in Sub-Saharan Africa in partnership with Strathmore University will implement the 4th Climate Diplomacy Academy (CDA2024) from April to June 2024. The Academy consists of a series of online tutorials which are aimed to;

  • Strengthen participants’ understanding of climate change and related impacts.
  • Enhance understanding of climate diplomacy as a key mechanism for building more responsive climate action at the local, regional and global levels.
  • Promote understanding of the pertinent challenges that diplomats and negotiators are facing in their efforts to build momentum and actions towards realizing the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement.
