Issues related to climate change are at the centre of all debates. After COP15 on the fight against desertification and drought in Abidjan, it is around its neighbour Ghana, which takes over with the Annual Assembly of the African Development Bank (AfDB) focused on the same subject.
On May 23, the 57th Annual Meeting of the Board of Governors of the African Development Bank (AfDB) Group opens in Accra, coupled with the 48th Annual Meeting of the Board of Governors of the African Development Fund, with the theme “Fostering climate resilience and a just energy transition for Africa”.
This theme aligns with the 27th UN Climate Change Conference (COP27) scheduled to take place in Egypt next November. For 4 days (23-27), member countries will have the opportunity to discuss the nature of the support expected from global development partners, as well as the estimated cost of building resilience and an energy transition just for their savings.
Despite its negligible contribution, Africa is the continent most vulnerable to climate change. The continent’s surface temperature has already risen faster than the global average.
