Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (KAS) is a German Political Foundation committed to fostering democracy and the rule of law, to implementing social and market-economic structures and to promoting human rights worldwide. Currently KAS hosts more than 200 projects in around 100 countries on four continents with about 80 field offices, including 20 offices in Sub-Saharan Africa. The KAS Regional Programme Energy Security and Climate Change in Sub-Saharan Africa has been operational since 2016 with its head office in Nairobi, Kenya.
Through coordination of activities in the Sub-Saharan part of the continent, the Programme has a mission to improve the political and social framework for climate friendly sustainable development, stronger regional and international cooperation on energy security and climate action in Sub-Saharan Africa countries. The fight against global warming, the sustainable use of resources and adaption and mitigation of climate related risks and disasters are among the greatest challenges facing the world today. Multilateralism and international diplomacy are key to find solutions to these global tasks. Within this context, the Regional Programme on Energy Security and Climate Change in Sub-Saharan Africa in partnership with Strathmore University will implement the 3rd Climate Diplomacy Academy. The Academy consists of a series of online tutorials which are aimed at strengthening participants’ understanding of climate change, its related impacts and the role of climate diplomacy in building more responsive climate action at the local, regional and global levels. It will also enhance understanding of the pertinent challenges that diplomats and negotiators are currently facing in their efforts to
build the momentum and actions towards realizing the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement. A three-day physical conference will take place at the end of June 2023 in Nairobi, Kenya. KAS will cover all costs related to participation in this physical conference for selected participants.
