ACPC footprint

Where we work

In collaboration and partnership with regional institutions, ACPC has directly supported many countries from all sub-regions in Africa. The centre’s interventions have been geared towards strengthening human and institution capacity, advising on climate response policies and strategies, and backstopping the climate change negotiation processes. In addition, ACPC has been a thought leader and a convenor of many platforms for developing thinking on contemporary topics regionally. In this regard, ACPC conceived the African Climate Talks, the Climate Research for Development (CR4D), and the Africa Climate Resilience Platform (AFRI-RES). In addition, ACPC was a key partner institution in the establishment of the ClimDev-Africa programme and the Weather and Climate Information Services for Africa (WISER). 

A detailed depiction of ACPC’s footprint and activities in Africa at national level is provided here.

In addition to the above footprint, since its inception, ACPC has implemented Pan-Africa interventions aimed at addressing climate change knowledge, awareness and capacity gaps, as enumerated below:
