The Alliance will be attending the 2nd Open Science Conference of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP), which will take place in Kigali, Rwanda, from 23-27 October 2023.
Hosted by the Rwanda Environment Management Authority (REMA) on behalf of the Government of Rwanda at the Kigali Convention Centre (KCC), the conference aims to facilitate engagement between research communities, stakeholders, and practitioners from Rwanda and the wider African region.
This event will bring together experts from climate, environment, and related fields to discuss the latest developments in climate science and address transformative actions necessary for a sustainable future. The outcomes of the conference sessions will result in the "Kigali Declaration," a statement to be presented at the 28th Conference of the Parties (COP28) in Dubai.
