To accelerate climate action and resilience within national NGOs in Africa, these local actors have committed to moving towards a sustainable, resilient and low-carbon development model, while strengthening their medical and social action in favour of populations and communities. As partners of ALIMA, our collaboration with them began with the implementation phase of the ALIMA roadmap. The latter included raising awareness among its partners to reflect on their own climate and environmental strategies, and mobilising them to take climate action themselves. This is an essential principle of the Climate Action Accelerator: that our partners influence their ecosystems in order to contribute to transforming the entire sector.
At the end of May 2023, with ALIMA as our gracious host, the Climate Action Accelerator organised workshops in Dakar with 2 of these partners (Alerte Santé and KEOOGO), enabling us to go further in the co-construction of their roadmaps.
