On Tuesday, 8 December 2015, a high-level side event named “Africa Day-Intended Nationally Determined Contributions: Implications, Prospects and Africa’s readiness to contribute to solutions” was organized to demonstrate Africa’s contributions toward finding sustainable solutions to the threats posed by climate change. The session provided a platform to debate the challenges, opportunities and means of implementing the INDCs in African countries. Discussions were divided into an opening session; a session on the status of INDCs; a ministerial dialogue on INDCs in Africa; and a session on the implications and prospects of the INDCs for Africa. The opening session was moderated and chaired by Shiferaw Teklemariam, Minister of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Ethiopia.

This video was produced by Nicole de Paula Domingos, Ph.D., and filmed/edited by Hernan Aguilar.
