|Each one of these coalitions prepared its annual workshop in order to pursue work that was initiated during the 2018 Summit in Abidjan (Ivory Coast), to capitalise and to sharpen its roadmap notably by identifying concrete projects to implement over the coming year.
These projects include the creation of a comprehensive portal on financing opportunities for climate action; reflection on the coordination of all actors working on climate data on the African continent and the dissemination of data; the creation of a network of local authorities and actors gathered around sustainable housing; the identification and dissemination of good practices on water and adaptation throughout 2020 to build a common narrative for the World Water Forum in Dakar in 2021.
The coalitions also worked on how to strengthen their activities over the coming year with dedicated local experts, but also how to adapt the roadmaps to certain countries, as it was done with the Ivory Coast roadmap during 2019, the definition of an Ivorian roadmap on sustainable mobility for 2050.
The Summit was he perfect opportunity for partners to unveil new information. Ademe international for example, published its report on “Electrifying Rural Africa” and announced its official support to 13 pilot cities currently part of the Covenant of Mayors for Sub-Saharan Africa.
