PRESENTATION OF THE SESSION

Cities and territories of Africa represent a significant share of the continent‘s GHG emissions (about 70 percent in Sub-Saharan Africa) and they host millions of people in areas that are sometimes very vulnerable to the effects of climate change. These realities reinforce the importance of the cities and territories of Africa in the implementation of the policies of fight against climate change. UCLG Africa intends to make of the 8th edition of the Africities Summit a strong political moment in the service of the achievement of a common goal of the cities and local governments in response to the major challenges of climate change and of the transition towards sustainable development.
This general objective aims specifically to strengthen the actions of the cities and territories in support of States for the implementation of their Nationally Determined Planned Contributions (NDPCs) or their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). This moment should lead to the adoption of a joint Declaration on the commitment to a broader partnership between national governments and local and regional governments in Africa for the implementation of the NDCs.
