African Climate Risks Conference 2019

The African Climate Risks Conference (ACRC) is an open platform for sharing the latest African climate research among researchers, policy makers, practitioners and development partners. ACRC 2019 will be held 7-9 October in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

The ACRC will offer a prime opportunity to promote the uptake of new data, tools and knowledge; brokering new research collaborations and more targeted donor support. It will also stimulate increased contribution of African experts to, and improve coverage of Africa, in the IPCC assessment reports; and bring together development partners to deliberate on how to improve programming to support African-led climate research and service priorities.

The overarching theme of the ACRC is "Dismantling barriers to urgent climate change adaptation actions".
