Long term climate action is geared towards supporting countries in meeting their contributions towards the global climate goals in a long-term and sustainable manner. Country-driven long term low carbon and climate-resilient strategies underpin the transformative potential of the Paris Agreement. They catalyze the process by which decision-makers in key sectors of the economy re-think policy, development, and technology pathways, and offer the opportunity to facilitate the alignment of national action and development plans with the Paris Agreement goals.
Finance, technology, and capacity building are critical enablers for reaching the goals of the Paris Agreement. Africa requires adequate and predictable means of implementation to maximize the opportunities provided by climate change. The cost of climate change solutions in Africa is estimated at US$ 4.5 trillion by 2030. The activities promoted by the Hub will endeavour to help African countries realize the full potential of NDCs as resource mobilization tools. the Hub will prioritize the development of robust systems, processes, or tools as well as open data and information sharing platforms that will promote accountability and transparency.
Increased advocacy and strong partnerships will ensure efficiency and delivery at scale while avoiding duplication. The Hub will work with stakeholders within regional member countries to prioritize interventions that address urgent, effective, and equitable responses to climate change.
