Africa, more than any other region in the word, will be without a doubt, the most harshly affected by the negative effects of climate change. As a result, the stakes are high in the struggle to preserve the continent's climate. The number of challenges faced by the continent - a population boom estimated to reach 9 billion in 2050, runaway urbanization, food insecurity, unemployment, etc. - in spite of the evident economic growth observed over the past 15 years, however, add to the severity of the situation.
Organized jointly by the African Development Bank (AfDB), the African Union Commission (AUC), the New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD), and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) at each COP since COP17 in Durban, the Africa Pavilion represents the unity of the continent and its determination to address the challenges of climate change.
