News Flash

  • Climate justice organizations and groups in Africa have launched a platform dubbed “Africa Vuka #Road2COP” to highlight climate stories, campaigns and calls for climate solutions on the road to COP 27 in Egypt.

The platform will showcase a variety of campaigns from across the continent advocating for real climate justice and a fossil-free Africa through several stops, which will culminate in arrival at the location of the climate talks in Egypt. CSOs and groups across the region are invited to submit their stories and contribute to the platform. In the lead up to COP, communities across Africa demand that the summit prioritizes a Loss and Damage finance mechanism that adequately addresses the needs and priorities of climate-vulnerable countries.

Among key campaigns that will feature on Afrika Vuka Road to COP is the Stop East African Crude Oil Pipeline (Stop EACOP) campaign, which has received regional and global attention over calls by climate activists to halt the project citing threats to people, nature and climate.
