The African Union Commission will hold a Climate Action Innovators Hub at the forthcoming Africa Climate Summit in Nairobi, Kenya on September 4-5, 2023. This Climate Action Innovation Hub will provide a chance to highlight a varied variety of bold, creative climate initiatives taking place across the continent that connect with the Africa Climate Change Strategy’s specific aims and targets.

This Innovation Hub will be a dedicated platform for Africa’s innovators, particularly women and youth, to display their ‘game-changing’ climate solutions and project ideas that contribute to the realization of a climate-resilient and sustainable Africa. Furthermore, this event provides a crucial venue for exchanging key lessons and ideas, as well as a chance to gain support for new solutions from a diverse and broad audience, including policymakers and possible investors.

African Union Climate Eligibility

  • Applications from climate innovators at various scales are welcome, with a preference given to projects that operate at a grassroots level or that demonstrate a high degree of social inclusion, particularly for women, youth and those facing economic hardship.
