COP 28 Side Event | Tackling Climate Change in Africa's Protected Areas
Taking place on Africa Day, this event, hosted jointly by WWF’s Regional Office for Africa and IISD, will focus on climate change challenges in protected areas, showcasing the Climate Adaptation and Protected Areas (CAPA) Initiative, funded by Canada’s Partnering for Climate Initiative. It will provide a space to unpack the complexity of climate change impacts and potential interventions, including through nature-based solutions. This event will also highlight the benefits of transboundary protected areas to enhance adaptation, biodiversity conservation, and development cooperation among neighbouring countries.
