Exactly six months ahead of the UNFCCC COP27 summit hosted by Egypt and immediately following the UNCCD COP15 summit hosted by Côte d’Ivoire, the 25-27 May 2022 Ibrahim Governance Forum aimed to help inform and articulate Africa’s position in the global debate around climate change.
Prior to the Forum, the Mo Ibrahim Foundation produced the Facts & Figures document to ensure debates are grounded in the most recent and relevant data.
The Ibrahim Forum Report now combines the data findings with the main takeaways and recommendations from the Forum sessions.
The Ibrahim Forum Report provides a comprehensive analysis of:
- the specific impacts of the climate crisis in Africa, and how these intersect with pre-existing social and development issues such as poverty, food insecurity, instability;
- the challenge of balancing access to energy and climate protection, in the continent with the largest energy gap globally;
- Africa’s promising role in the global fight against climate change, if financial, human and governance hurdles are overcome.
The Forum Report concludes with 15 Key Recommendations from the Ibrahim Governance Forum aimed at ensuring Africa's agenda is placed at the heart of continental and global agreements and policy actions on the way - and beyond - COP27.
