Ride in support of the Africa Climate Action Initiative!
Africa is the continent the most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, which is causing food insecurity, health challenges, poverty, conflicts and forced migration.
The Africa Climate Action Initiative seeks to promote and accelerate climate change mitigation and adaptation activities that support human security in Africa, the continent the most vulnerable to climate change. Our aims are to:
(1) Promote African projects that support African communities to mitigate and adapt to the impacts of climate change. (2) Leverage funding (grant and otherwise) to support the implementation and scale-up of climate-smart projects in Africa. (3) Support African partners with developing and monitoring climate-smart projects. (4) Connect African partners to implementing partners and to other organizations working on similar projects in order to foster knowledge-sharing and capacity-building on climate-related issues. (5) Raise awareness through outreach, events and strategic initiatives, and mobilize Canadians to support climate action in Africa.
