CLIMATE CHANCE Summit Agadir

Climate Non-State Actors World Summit

11-13 SEPTEMBER 2017

CONTEXT

Unique in its international dimension, the Climate Chance Summit aims to become the annual meeting of all non-state actors involved in the fight against climate change.

Continuing the dynamic of multi-stakeholder dialogue initiated since the World Climate and Territories Summit in Lyon in 2015 and after the success of the 1st Climate Chance Summit in Nantes in 2016, the Climate Chance 2017 Summit is co- region of Souss-Massa in Morocco from 11 to 13 September 2017, in the city of Agadir. This second edition will make it possible to measure the progress of the action, to deepen exchanges on successes and difficulties and to promote the pooling of experiences and innovations.

It will also be an opportunity to strengthen the dialogue between non-state actors (local authorities, companies, associations, trade unions, professional federations, non-governmental organizations, scientific organizations, donors, climate- international and those more focused on their local problems, and to allow a better articulation between the territorial questions and the global stakes.

Recognized for its commitment to sustainable development, particularly in the field of renewable energies and sustainable tourism, the Souss-Massa region is illustrated by a particularly dynamic economic and social fabric committed to the preparation and participation of the Climate Chance .

Thematic plenary – « African cities in the face of the climate change challenge »

African cities are confronted on a daily basis with the impacts of climate change, which are exacerbating already existing issues. These cities are increasingly experiencing the need to better comprehend climate issues while in the meantime responding to both environmental and socio-economic challenges. Around thirty cities have developed climate initiatives within the framework of the Covenant of Mayors and experiences of non-state actors are scaling up on the ground.This plenary will attempt to provide some answers to the following questions: How can urban strategies be developed to increase both the adaptive capacity of cities and mitigate their GHG emissions? How can urban strategies balance and find synergies between immediate development priorities and long-term needs for climate resilience?
