EU will to help Africa tackle climate change

Following a high-level meeting in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, the EU has granted ClimDev Africa Initiative €8 million to support Africa’s response to climate change challenges. According to the press service of the EU delegation to the African Union, the grant agreement was signed at the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA)  this week.
The contribution is part of the Global Climate Change Alliance funding, a programme in which the EU and the most vulnerable Developing Countries are working together to tackle climate change. The grant will enhance the capacities of the African Climate Policy Centre (ACPC) at ECA and the Climate Change and Desertification Unit at African Union Commission (AUC) to carry out their activities for a period of 3 years.
