Climate Investment Funds Parley Holds On Monday In Côte d’Ivoire

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The Climate Investment Funds (CIF), the Government of Côte d’Ivoire, and the African Development Bank (AfDB) Group will on Monday hold a hybrid session to promote knowledge-sharing and to broker lessons from 15 years of CIF’s interventions in Africa.

It will bring together participants from CIF partner governments, contributor countries, the private sector, civil society, local community groups, and multilateral development banks.

The event will equally provide a forum for African countries to showcase innovations and outcomes and discuss challenges in implementing sustainable forestry, climate resilience, and nature-based solutions.
