AfDB at COP20: Engaging in Lima is crucial for Africa
Location: Lima, Peru
The 20th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 20) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC) taking place in Lima, Peru, from December 1-12 offers an unprecedented opportunity to mobilize the support of key public and private finance players to unlock low-carbon resilient growth and facilitate a legally binding international agreement at the COP 21 in Paris 2015. The African Development Bank will take this opportunity to promote the importance of addressing climate change challenges and access to climate finance for African countries.
The main objective of the annual global climate change conference is to lay the groundwork and agree globally on a draft of a new universal agreement that will replace the Kyoto Protocol. This new draft accord on carbon emissions reduction will then need to be signed in COP 21, which will take place in Paris in 2015.
