World leaders, Heads of State, and government will be converging in Nairobi from the 4th to the 8th of next month, September, for the African Climate Summitt, which will bring together leaders and investors from Africa and beyond to share experiences and solutions for a sustainable, resilient Africa.
On Tuesday, the Interior Ministry revealed the government has set up a multi-agency team of at least 4,000 to provide security for the event aiming to champion a positive, climate-compatible vision for Africa.
Sessions of the summit will focus on adaptation and resilience, renewable energy and sustainable development, and financing for climate action.
The Summit will serve as a platform to inform, frame, and influence commitments, pledges, and outcomes, ultimately leading to the development of the Nairobi Declaration.
The Government of Kenya is co-hosting the Summit with the African Union Commission (AUC).
