This week is Africa Climate Week. Officials from eight African countries and the UN are convening in Nairobi for a week-long conference, the purpose of which is to support the implementation of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) under the Paris Agreement as well as assist delivery on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
