Africa's Readiness for Climate Change (ARCC) Forum 2020

April 24 – 26, 2020


Due to the potential spread of COVID-19, particularly in university contexts, and to challenges the epidemic poses for international travel, we are postponing the ARCC Forum initially planned for April 24-26th 2020. We are obviously very disappointed by this turn of events but our first priority is the wellbeing of our community. We intend to reschedule the forum once the current crisis passes and will be in touch with details.

About ARCC

The UCLA African Studies Center and the Earth Rights Institute invite you to submit a proposal for ARCC 2020. The inaugural forum will expand an integrated vision of “Green Development” in Africa that is both ecologically and economically sustainable, emphasizing local solutions to climate change developed by African stakeholders in urban and rural communities. ARCC 2020 will assemble interdisciplinary panels of scholars, scientists, industry leaders, climate change innovators, youth activists, and policy-makers to discuss the most successful sustainable development projects. These key contributors will identify priorities for research and implementation, and collaboratively develop a five-year action plan. If you are conducting climate change research or leading an initiative aligned with one or more of the conference’s envisioned themes, we encourage you to submit a proposal.
