The African Climate Week (ACW) is an annual event that combines the headquarters of governments, business owners, international organizations, and civil society to discover ideas for decreasing greenhouse gas emissions while adapting to the rising outgrowth of the climate crisis. The 2023 African Climate Week took place  from September 4 to 8 in Kenya’s Capital, Nairobi. The 2023 African Climate Week was hosted by the Government of Kenya.

The 2023 ACW was included alongside the African Climate Summit (ACS) that ran from September 4 to 6, which was also hosted by the  Government of Kenya. This event took place at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre in Nairobi, Kenya.

During the African Climate Summit, the African leaders were encouraged to make pledges and commitments, concerning the adoption of a “Pledging and Commitment Framework.”

The 2023 ACW was arranged into four departments, each section concentrating on a specific issue: 

  • Energy systems and industry 

  • Cities, urban and rural settlements, infrastructure and transport 

  • Land, ocean, food, and water 

  • Societies, health, livelihoods, and economies

Africa is now becoming the most endangered continent to climate change, regardless of being in control of the 2 to 3 percent of global carbon emissions and earning only 3 percent of financing performance to climate mitigation and adaptation. Caroline Kimeu, The Guardian’s East Africa global development correspondent, spoke with Ali Rogin, PBS’s Newshour Host to explain and review Africa’s climate summit in Kenya and its aftermath.
