You have less than a month to nominate your projects for the AfriCAN Climate Good Practice Award


The deadline for nominations in the second round of the AfriCAN Climate Awards – the Good Practice category – is 4 October 2013 (midnight CET)

Through its awards, AfriCAN Climate aims to recognise the achievements, and raise the profile, of individuals or organisations that have made outstanding contributions to climate change adaptation and mitigation in Afric.

The AfriCAN Climate Good Practice Award is due to be presented in Nairobi, Kenya, in November 2013. Further details and nomination forms can be found here.

The principles of Good Practice in climate change adaptation and mitigation


AfriCAN Climate focuses on the implementation of projects that help African communities adapt to the impacts of climate change. It also highlights specific investment or infrastructure projects that aim to achieve measurable greenhouse gas reductions while at the same time enabling wider social and economic developmen.

We evaluate projects against eight good practice principles to assess their financial, economic, social and environmental sustainability. This set of principles is intended to encourage critical reflection and help project developers draw lessons relevant to a broader audience of African stakeholders.
