Climate and Development in Africa Conference (CCDA)

The annual flagship event of ClimDev-Africa* is a highly interactive conference which is an increasingly valued space for multi-stakeholder engagement around key African climate-related issues. CCDA is an important platform for policy engagement around climate and development issues in Africa.


The fifth conference, CCDA-V to be held in Victoria Falls/Livingstone in Zimbabwe and Zambia respectively, will provide a space for high level discussions where key messages can be articulated and crystallized to reflect Africa's interests and growing confidence as a critical stakeholder in global climate change governance and strengthen Africa’s ability to seize opportunities from climate change to better prepare the continent for transformative development.


The conference will bring together participants from African member states, regional economic communities, river basin organizations and representatives of the United Nations and non-governmental organizations, the private sector, academia and development partners.
