The Talanoa dialogue was a highlight ending of the just concluded Bonn Climate Change Conference of Parties dubbed COP 23 which established a framework for continued dialogue among parties to ramp up efforts towards limiting emissions in accordance with the long term goal of the Paris Agreement -  a below 2C warming. Low emissions development pathways  are key strategic underpinnings to achieve this ultimate emissions reduction goal that were explored in Bonn,  and which will form the basis for this continued dialogue. 

Africa, given its comparative advantage in clean energy resources such as the best solar resource in the entire planet, is set to leverage on up-scaling clean energy in meeting its commitments to this emissions reduction goal. Scaling clean energy, combined with sustainable Ecosystems Based Adaptation (EBA) Driven Agriculture, a catalytic sector in the continent, is an opportunity for youth to create market based enterprises which in turn can  incentivize uptake of Climate Action. 

Considering that youth represent the greatest Africa resource to accelerate development, how can they be engaged to drive this transformational approach to climate action? Join the discussions to learn more on this.

Standards are critical for quality control which is a prerequisite for producing competitive products & services that can fetch a market, catalyze trade and accelerate job creation. But such standards are as good as their level of enforcement.
