UNFCCC outlaws physical meetings, postpones Africa climate week



The UN Climate Change secretariat, in close collaboration with all the other organizing partners, has decided to put Africa Climate Week in Kampala on hold. This is to ensure the health and safety of all participants in light of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

The meeting, which was planned to take place April 20 to 24, 2020, is only postponed and not canceled, and will take place at a later time that is yet to be determined.

Meanwhile, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) has outlawed physical meetings in Bonn and elsewhere between March 6 and end of April due to the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak, and the evolving situation in Germany.

A statement issued by UNFCCC Executive Secretary Patricia Espinosa said: “This exceptional measure aims to contain the spread of COVID-19 and safeguard the health and safety of participants.
