Climate Action

Engaging with Africa on Climate Change


A roundtable on responding to new policy realities - opportunities for climate cooperation with Africa

In this period running up to UN conference on climate change in Durban (COP17/CMP7), the roundtable presents an opportunity to examine Africa's position in the global debate, the relevance of EU relations with Africa and its response to the issues in the African context.

The debate will engage some 200 African and European participants in the climate debate, from government, international institutions, academia and civil society. It will revolve around two themes:

  • the global issues which condition the EU-Africa relationship, and
  • the EU and Africa agendas in response to climate change.
