This conference, AFRICA 2030, will focus on strengthening the means through which African universities may support the resilience capacity of African countries to handle the challenges of a changing environment. The event will serve the purpose of showcasing experiences from research, field projects, and best practices in climate change adaptation in African universities, which may be replicated or upscaled in the continent. The Symposium will be a truly interdisciplinary event, organized in the framework of the 2030 UN Agenda for Sustainable Development, and Agenda 2036 of the African Union, mobilizing African and non-African scholars undertaking research and/or executing climate change projects in the African continent. The deadline for registration is February 20, 2023.
