The international community achieved a resounding success crafting a new, universal climate change agreement at COP21 in Paris in December 2015.
The agreement marked the start of a historic new era for Africa, one that holds great challenges but also exciting, transformational opportunities driven by ambitious national action and increased international cooperation on policies and action for low‐carbon development, climate finance, market‐driven approaches, technology transfer and capacity‐building.
