Kicc, Nairobi, Kenya

The Africa Climate Summit (ACS) will be held from 4th to 6th September 2023 at Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC) in Nairobi and will be co-hosted by the Government of Kenya and the Africa Union Commission (AUC).

The inaugural Africa Climate Summit, championed by H.E. President Ruto, aims to address the increasing exposure to climate change and its associated costs, both globally and particularly in Africa. With the expectation of escalating climate crises in terms of frequency and intensity, urgent action is required to mitigate these challenges.

The Summit will serve as a platform to inform, frame, and influence commitments, pledges, and outcomes, ultimately leading to the development of the Nairobi Declaration, which is expected to be a key outcome.
