Africa Union promises to help Africa to mobilize climate action funds

The Africa Union has pledged to help governments secure funding for their climate pledges through the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). Commissioner for Rural Development and Agriculture at the AU Commission Josefa Sacko said this during the 10th Africa Carbon Forum in Nairobi. Ms Sacko noted the continental body would ensure that all countries make strides in achieving their goals.

She revealed that besides working closely with African climate negotiators, the organization had embarked on providing technical support to the governments. Ms Sacko told African governments to hasten their dialogue with the international partners in pursuit of financial and technical support.
