HE. Dr. William Samoei Ruto, President of the Republic of Kenya and Chair of the Committee of African Heads of State and Government on Climate Change (CAHOSCC) is expected to deliver a keynote during the Summit. The 3rd PAP Climate Summit will bring together stakeholders from across the continent to catalyze broad support for pro-poor, just, equitable, locally led, and science-based decisions in climate action.

The event is set to provide a platform for parliamentarians, government officials, experts, civil society organizations, and other stakeholders to share ideas, exchange best practices, and explore ways to address the pressing challenges of climate change. The Pan-African Parliament seeks to create a critical mass of stakeholders capable of driving sustainable development and climate action on the African continent. The high-level climate engagement will also identify a common African agenda in the Global Stock Take (GST) process and in the countdown to COP28, and the role parliamentarians can play.

The opening day will take place as follows:

Date: 16 May 2023

Time: 8:00hrs to 17:30hrs

Venue: Plenary Hall, Pan-African Parliament Headquarters, Midrand, South Africa
