Jose Masembe of Uganda’s Little Hands Go Green was among the delegates who represented Uganda at the 6th Conference on Climate Change and Development in Africa in Addis Ababa Ethiopia organised by the United Nations Economic Commissioner for Africa (UNECA).
Uganda’s Little Hands Go Green continues to participate in the most important forums across the globe to fight against climate change and we applaud them for that.
Hon. Thomas Tayebwa of the Parliamentary Committee on Natural Resources also attended the Addis Ababa conference.
Innovation in Climate Information Services (CIS) Delivery in Africa; Coordinated National framework for Climate Services in addressing the post – Paris Agreement, Agenda 2063 and Agenda 2030 were discussed at the conference.
“We have come to the end of a very informative Climate Change and Development Conference for Africa held under the auspices of the United Nations Economic commission for Africa (UNECA) in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
Over the last four days we have had discussions on very pertinent topics and an agenda that is dear to me and our continent- on how to take forward the implementation of the Paris Agreement. As we prepare ourselves for the Conference of Parties (COP22) with one African voice, the reflections from this conference will be instrumental in accentuating Africa’s positions for strong action.
It’s been very clear from the discourse that we need a coordinated and programmatic approach to climate change across the continent. Working in silos or doing business as usual is no longer tenable especially as we grapple with the meager resources at our disposal. We need to leverage and compliment the resources and build on the capacities of all players in the climate change arena.
I wish all African climate negotiators and scientists a safe travel back to their respective domiciles and look forward to working together on this important agenda for the African continent,” Mungu Amubariki ( God bless).
