ACMAD at COP 27
ACMAD was established following the resolution 540 in 1985 of the conference of Ministers of Economy, finance and development planning of UNECA following the severe droughts of the 1970s and 80s in Africa characterized by nearly a halt of Niger river flow in parts of the basin.
The center is more than ever determined to leverage on the strengths of partnership to serve member states supporting resilience to disasters and adaptation to climate change across Africa helping to realize the AU agenda 2063 “The Africa Event”.
Therefore, the center is at the heat of efforts to build resilience to extremes weather/climate and reduce impacts of climate change on Africa’s development initiatives as enshrined into the Paris Agreement.
ACMAD participates at COP 27 as Intergovernmental Organization and supports African Negotiator by providing Climate Information and trend over the African continent.
AT COP 27, ACMAD will organize four side events to emphasis the impact of Climate Change at Continental level.

About COP 27
COP27 will bring governments together to accelerate global efforts to confront the climate crisis. It is an important meeting because the latest science shows that climate change is moving much faster than we are, and is pushing ecosystems and communities to their limits. We need to urgently scale up efforts to adapt to a warming world and to implement climate solutions across all sectors to halve emissions by 2030.
COP 27 will focus on developing greater resilience and reducing vulnerability to climate change. Finance relates to the $100 billion pledge and the importance of showing progress on delivering this. In particular, it will be a key component of helping to strengthen resilience and achieving these goals
